Community Forums - K-12 Educators - Digging Deeper Program from ASPB and BSCS

A forum for K-12 educators to share classroom resources and teaching ideas. If you would like to contribute to the forums or to change your subscription, please log in to the left.

BSCS, the Botanical Society of America, and the American Society of Plant Biologists are looking for high school life science teachers who are interested in participating in a unique professional development opportunity involving collaborations with research scientists, teachers, and students.

  • Are you interested in collaborating with scientist mentors to help students learn how to conduct research on plants?
  • Are you interested in taking part in face-to-face and online professional development to help enhance your teaching practices?
  • Would you like to participate in a research project to find out how collaborations among teachers, research scientists, and students can lead to enhanced student learning?
  • Are you interested in having your students work more with plants?

Digging Deeper is a professional development (PD) research project that builds on the success of PlantingScience, an online science mentoring community for high school biology students.

The Digging Deeper project will develop, implement, and test a professional development (PD) model whereby teachers and scientists work closely together over extended periods to guide students in authentic science investigations and then to reflect on instructional and mentoring strategies that are effective for enhancing student learning.

To learn more about the program and how to apply, visit Digging Deeper Information. Applications are due January 29, 2016.
