professional development program

Are you wondering what your students are thinking in chemistry?

If you are an experienced (3+ years) middle school or high school teacher of chemistry in the US in the Central or Eastern time zone, you are invited you to apply to participate in the ACCT professional development program to examine how formative assessment can foster students’ chemical thinking. Due to the changes in schooling caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACCT project is changing its plan for professional development for 2020-2021 school year. To respect the time that teachers will need to adjust with their students in the new school year, we will offer the ACCT professional development program in a synchronous interactive and remote (via Zoom) shorter format of a half-year, beginning in January 2021.
