High School Teachers
Apply to MBI: Teachers
The Molecular Biology Initiative uses dedicated teams of high school science teachers and biology graduate students to bring high-tech science and science career options to area high school students. Georgia Southern University biology graduate students serve as content experts for teachers, providing information and molecular biology technical skills, while infusing their research into the lesson plans and lab activities.
As a partner teacher you will direct all curriculum revisions and be the driving force for all reform, while the graduate student will be available to serve as a resource (e.g. provide info, find examples, trial wet labs, generate draft handouts, teach selected segments of new activities, identify outdoor resources, etc.). The graduate student will come to your school on a regular basis to assist you (starting sometime in September).
Over the course of the year, you will receive compensation for full program participation. In addition, your school district will need to set aside funds for supplies, equipment and professional development days as part of the MBI program. Finally, we can arrange for CE credit if desired. Given the on-going nature of the collaboration, it will not be possible to participate in the program if you will have a student teacher in your classroom next year.
The Molecular Biology Initiative is actively recruiting high school science teachers for the 2015-2016 program. If you would like to participate, please complete the MBI Teacher Application below no later than April 21, 2015. If you need any additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. or call (912-478-1923).
Please be aware that final participant selection will be made in consultation with the individual schools and school districts. School districts that are currently participating in this program include; Bulloch County School District, Effingham County School District, Evans County School District, and Liberty County School District, however, we will consider participation by new districts.
