TERC has been funded by the National Science Foundation to develop and research materials for those using the FOSS kits Diversity of Life and Populations and Ecosystems in 6, 7 or 8th grade. We are recruiting 10 or more teachers from districts that already use one of these kits at the middle school level (they don't have to use both). The project is flexible: we start when teachers want to at almost any point in 2010-2011 academic year. We can offer $350--$500 per teacher, 12-17 PDP's, all materials, face to face training and funds for the science department if necessary for science materials. We are underway in a few states already and are seeking to add groups of teachers for the academic year. For more formation or to register please contact project assistant rachel hayes at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-547-0430.
