The research-based Mi-STAR Professional Learning Program supports the transformation of science and engineering teaching and learning and prepares teachers to implement our curriculum in the classroom.
About the Program
The Mi-STAR Professional Learning Program uses a "train the trainers" approach to professional development and includes two unique pathways:
Teacher Pathway: Small groups of middle school teachers complete a series of activities to prepare them to implement the Mi-STAR Curriculum in their classrooms. Groups are led by a certified Mi-STAR Professional Learning Facilitator (PLF).
Facilitator Pathway: Mi-STAR staff trains individuals with the appropriate STEM background and experience in teacher professional learning to become Mi-STAR certified Professional Learning Facilitators (PLF).
