Kennedy Elementary School, Stockton

Five K-8 teachers will pursue STEM teacher professional development with a focus on experiential, project-based science education that will strengthen students’ writing proficiency. Over two years, members will attend STEM certificate training at Teachers College of San Joaquin and Project Based Learning seminars at the Buck Institute of Education’s annual conference. The entire faculty will receive expert training in how to link project-based science with writing, creating a cadre of teachers to disseminate these best practices across the district.
