This workshop will be focused on the use of a teaching methodology (Conceptual Change Model) that requires students to fully engage in the process of inquiry. This is a multistep process whereby students first commit to an idea, then collect evidence to confirm or refute this idea. Once they have developed a mental schema that they feel confident with, they can apply this to new and varied scenarios.

Sheri Gates has been a teacher in international schools for 20 years. She has taught the Diploma program in Biology and Chemistry and ESS and has also taught the MYP program in grades 6-9. She has worked in recent years with the curriculum development of MYP science courses. The model she will be using in this workshop comes from Dr. Lillian McDermott and the Physics Education Group at the University of Washington. Sheri has been working with this program for the past 6 years and has been focused on broadening the scope of this model so that it can be used in younger year groups and also in non-physics sciences.
