the Symposium teachers gain ideas about science and math resources, assessment
and lessons inspired by participation in QUEST and CONNECT-ED. Exchange
of lessons and ideas is a valuable part of the QUEST experience, and that is
why we stipulate that participants attend the Symposium when they
registered for the summer institute. See the Lesson Sharing
Guidelines below (in this message) describing how we share ideas at the
registration form is on-line. Registration

Lemonick Science and Math Teaching Award
of Dr. Aaron Lemonick and his devotion to QUEST,
we are offering science and math
to help teachers implement inquiry-based instruction.
Lemonick Teaching Award application deadline is March 4, 2013.
Teaching Award application is accessed from a dropdown box on the Symposium
Anne Catena (609-258-2537) or e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any
aspect of the Lemonick Symposium or the Lemonick Teaching Award. The symposium
lesson sharing guidelines are below. We look forward to a terrific day.
featured Symposium speakers are QUEST and CONNECT-ED teachers! The intent
of the symposium is for our teachers to share ideas and lessons for
the Symposium, we ask that teachers be prepared to talk for 5 minutes
about a science or math lesson implemented as a result of their QUEST and/or
CONNECT-ED experience. The talk is very informal and there is no
expectation to prepare a presentation. Teacher
discussions will take place among a small group of colleagues and it would
be fantastic to engage your colleagues in a sample hands-on activity from your
lesson (it’s not essential, but it would be fun).
lessons shared should be inquiry-based and could focus on science, math,
technology or the integration of these areas with other curriculum content.
Teachers should prepare to talk about things that worked especially well with
the lesson, what teachers learned from the activity and from their students.
talks should focus on one of the following:
- An original lesson
inspired by QUEST or CONNECT-ED or
A QUEST or CONNECT-ED
lesson adapted for your classroom – explain how and why you
changed it or
- Any lesson adapted
to be more inquiry based - explain how you adapted it.
