About the Teaching Box Pilot Project
The Teaching Box Pilot Project is a partnership between the DLESE Program Center, UCAR; the University of California Museum of Paleontology, Berkeley; the U.S. Geological Survey, Menlo Park; San Francisco State University, and several San Francisco Bay Area school districts. Funding for this project has been provided by the National Science Foundation.
Two objectives of the project are to prototype and evaluate:
In the 2004-2005 pilot project, seven teachers worked with DLESE Program Center staff and partners in the development and classroom testing of two teaching boxes. In 2005-2006, a new cadre of eight teachers from the San Francisco Bay Area developed four additional Teaching Boxes. The on-line tools used to create Teaching Boxes will be refined and made available to library users in the future.
Please contact us if you are interested in participating in the creation of Teaching Boxes or would like more information.
