ATOMS: Advancing Teaching Opportunities for Math and Science
KCK Community College and the KCK-Public School collaborated to host an institute to build a deeper understanding of the family of content, skills and processes in math and science curriculum where past assessment showed lower student achievement. Participants were given the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of how science and math interact and support each other in the process of inquiry. And, participants developed a series of hands – on activities and support that will help students engage, explore and explain both math and science skills and content. A true partnership between faculty at the community college and district faculty developed. This talk focuses on the path to building this partnership and where we go from here.
