The Teacher Institute for Evolutionary Science (TIES) is a network of over 50 teachers providing free workshops for middle school science teachers. We’ve presented 75 workshops in 33 states in just three years. The workshop for the OSTA Annual Conference would include the following components:

  1. A bell ringer activity
  2. A slide presentation addressing middle school evolution standards (free for the participants and full of valuable web links and active learning ideas)
  3. A tour of the TIES Online Learning Page (with dozens of free videos, hands-on labs, online games and links to informative evolution websites)
  4. A hands-on activity on natural selection titled, This Lab is for the Birds which focuses on data collection and analysis (patterned after Peter and Rosemary Grants Galapagos Finch research)

Instructor: Kathryn Green, Teacher Institute for Evolutionary Science
