Since the summer of 2017, PWSC has offered the Math 4 Teachers course. This course has led to the development of the For Teachers project that for this year will include courses in technology, environmental science, and construction. For Teachers courses are open to any teacher but primarily aimed at certified high school teachers who are teaching courses that are outside of their primary area of specialty. Each For Teachers course is based on a one-week summer experience followed by an implementation exercise during the fall.
The For Teachers courses help teachers:
- More effectively lead instruction in the discipline
- Incorporate place-based and experiential learning ideas into the curriculum
- Build lesson plans that achieve the Alaska Standards
- Include the Alaska Cultural standards as an equal partner in the teacher’s instruction
The For Teachers courses include four primary components:
Each For Teachers course has its own schedule. Below is a representative schedule to give you an idea of what to generally expect. Please consult with your specific For Teachers page to see the rough draft schedule for your course. The instruction is based in outdoor activities, but we may adapt the schedule for extreme weather or for other unforeseen circumstances and events.
