Participating teachers describe this program as:

  • “rigorous, time-consuming, demanding, exciting for the students, and engaging.”

  • “a great program to coach teachers in implementing student-centered inquiry.”

  • “a very hands-on approach. Students learn a lot through activities and collaborating in groups. [They connect] prior knowledge to new information to construct a better understanding of the content.”
