ACRES January Cohort: Asking Purposeful Questions
January 19th, February 9th, March 2nd, 9th, and 16th; 3:30-5:00 PM PST
Afterschool Coaching for Reflective Educators in STEM (ACRES) is a nationally acclaimed coaching program that builds knowledge and skills so after school educators, librarians and anyone who works with youth in out-of-school settings can confidently facilitate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) experiences for youth.
Questions are the beginning of a path towards discovery, imagination, and STEM exploration. How can we help youth expand and clarify their thinking and develop their reasoning through the questions we ask them? This module is designed for educators who have some experience facilitating STEM learning and would like to grow in their practice within a supportive group of other educators.
*The expectation is that you will be live at all three sessions and an active member of this coaching cohort. While funding is still available, stipends are offered to participants who complete feedback surveys before and after a module. You do not get a $100 stipend solely for participating. Be sure to check with your coach before you start the course, to see whether you are eligible for a survey-stipend. Stipends are limited and not guaranteed.
