Baltimore Excellence in STEM Teaching (BEST) Project
2011–2012 BEST Project Classroom Implementation Projects (CIP)
As a culminating project for their participation in BEST, teachers designed an instructional module that translates aspects of their summer research experience into meaningful, engaging lessons for their students. Lessons also incorporate pedagogical strategies explored during the school-year Learning Community including inquiry-based instruction, formative assessment strategies, and integrated STEM and STEM-ELA instruction. Links to example BEST Project CIPs are provided below. Please direct questions about the BEST Project and/or these resources to Julie Damico at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The title of each Classroom Implementation Project is linked to a module of related lesson plans (in acrobat PDF format) and, in some cases, supporting PowerPoint files.
