Design and conduct NGSSaligned lessons and activities.

Implement, modify and discuss inquirybased lab exercises.

Develop and modify formative and summative assessments.

Receive and unpack a large number of classroomready resources for all core topics in the physics curriculum.

Each day I gained deeper understanding in physics as well as pedagogical design, which has fundamentally elevated my teaching and dramatically improved learning outcomes for my students.
Rebekah DiGiacomo
Lonoke High School, AR
During the workshop I was able to develop a solid foundation in multiple representations and questioning techniques. I was able to enhance my current lessons to offer a very thorough treatment of the subject matter right from day one.
Chris George,
Rutgers Preparatory, NJ
From this course, I have developed a deeper understanding of physics for myself and I learned completely new ways to stimulate thinking in my students. The entire course was a model for how to run a successful physics classroom.
Donna Saulys
Franklin High School, NJ
Since I took the Rutgers course, my students are more engaged, able to collaborate more effectively about physics concepts, and are enjoying the class much more. Matt’s class has given me the tools to help my students reach new heights.
Alice FahyElwood
Somerville High School, NJ
I learned that it is most important for students to grapple with concepts first and design their own questions. I have been inspired to change my teaching style, and my classroom is a more collaborative community of learners because of my experience this summer.
Keisha Stephen
Highland Park High School, NJ
My teaching is orders of magnitude better because of the experiences I had in the course. I teach at a much deeper level, and the students are all the better for it. It was worth every penny, and I recommend it to every physics teacher that I know.
