Abstract

This paper describes a new program of study for inservice teachers in Miami/Dade County Florida, for the purpose of developing more teachers interested in teaching middle school science. At the end of this interactive/distance learning program, teachers will have gone from an elementary/early childhood specialty to middle school science certification, helping to meet a critical shortage of teachers in this area. The community of teachers is dominated by females and the students they teach consist of the most heterogeneous population in the state, with many minority groups represented. This ongoing course is still evolving and the teachers are responding very favorably to this approach of combining instruction in pedagogy with scientific methods and ideas.
