The TIMES Project has a ten-year record of success in helping teachers experience the “science” in earth science and bringing this experience to their teaching. TIMES is an exciting opportunity for you to experience Minnesota geology first-hand, study the geology of your region, work with a variety of scientists who are experts in Minnesota geology and field research, bring local examples of geology to your classroom, and expand your own curriculum to incorporate more student-directed investigations and learning.
TIMES XIV and its 18 teacher participants completed two weeks of active, engaging field work June 20 to July 1, 2011 with visits to Minnehaha Falls, St. Cloud, Taylor's Falls, Downtown Saint Paul, Mounds Park, Lilydale, Kraemer Quarry, St. Anthony Falls Lab, Southeastern Minnesota, and Henderson. They constructed a stratigraphic column of the area bedrock, visited daily with experts in Minnesota geology, and worked on implementing standards-based field investigations for their students.
Instructors: Dr. Kate Pound, Lee Schmitt and a host of geologists from the Minnesota Geological Survey
TIMES is a regionally-focused professional development program for secondary earth science teachers presented by Hamline University's School of Education through its Center for Global Environmental Education. Funds for this project were provided by a grant from the federal Teacher Quality Program of the No Child Left Behind Act administered by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. This project was financed by $56,908 in federal funds.
If funding is available, a new TIMES cohort would begin in 2013. Check back here for updates.
