    Episode 56 - Amanda Whitehurst - "Training and Equiping Teachers for STEM"

    Episode 56 - Amanda Whitehurst - "Training and Equiping Teachers for STEM"

    Mark and Amanda talk about her background as a middle school teacher, the STEM master's program she took at ASU, which introduced her to modeling instruction and eventually led her to found the Cactus Caucus, which advocated for funding for teachers to recertify to teach physics, chemistry and other high-needs areas in Arizona schools. They talk about her move from teaching to the Arizona STEM Acceleration Project at ASU, how this project works, and about building community among our teachers.

    Episode 55 – Paul Sasso – “Astronomy Modeling has so much to offer”

    Episode 55 – Paul Sasso – “Astronomy Modeling has so much to offer”

    In this episode, Mark talks with Paul Sasso, a physics and astronomy teacher from Maine. They talk about Paul's experience as a new teacher and his introduction to modeling instruction, and later to the new modeling astronomy materials. After taking the modeling astronomy workshop and returning as both participant and "intern," Paul was invited to attend modeling workshop leader training. They talk about that experience and then dive into more thoughts on the astronomy and exoplanets materials, the virtual course, and engaging hands-on activities for the students.

    Episode 54 - Scott Milam - “The historical progression of chemistry and a book titled Teaching Introductory Chemistry”

    In this episode, Mark talks with chemistry teacher Scott Milam. They talk about his interest in the history of chemistry thinking and the development of models in chemistry as far back as hundreds of years ago. They talk about how Scott thinks about teaching chemistry, and the questions he is focusing on right now. This leads them to talk about setting up assessments so he focuses very intentionally on key goals in each unit. They also talk about his chemistry content, his YouTube Channel, and Scott's book Teaching Introductory Chemistry.

    Episode 53 – Mark Lattery – Modeling Method and Modeling Teachers International

    Episode 53 – Mark Lattery – Modeling Method and Modeling Teachers International

    In this episode, Mark talks with Mark Lattery, professor of physics at University of Wisconson, OshKosh. He has taught using modeling methods since 1999. He does research in experimental particle physics and modeling methods. They talk about modeling physics in Mark Lattery's college-level physics course for non-majors, and how Mark first learned about modeling early in his teaching career.

    Episode 52 - Karle Delo - Implementing A.I. In The Classroom

    Episode 52 - Karle Delo - Implementing A.I. In The Classroom

    In this episode, Mark talks with Karle Delo about how teachers could use AI tools to generate ideas for connections between topics of study and areas of interest for their students. She talks about how to get started using AI and discusses the importance of not ignoring it entirely. She has many good resources and encourages teachers to take a look and see what could help them improve their practice or even streamline the sub plan building process.
