    2021 Sustainable Energies Summer Boot Camps

    by Bob Jackson -

    July 11-16, 2021 and July 18-23, Rose-Hulman PRISM will be facilitating two different sessions of the Sustainable Energies Summer Boot Camps for Indiana teachers.  The boot camps take place on the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology campus.   STEM teachers, grades 4 -12, teaching units in their curriculum on sustainable and alternative energies are invited to apply.  The purpose of this program is to provide the participating teachers a true "boot camp experience" in sustainable alternative energies combining academic professional development with vocational site visits to some alternative energy providers in Indiana. Some site visits may be in the form of virtual visits relative to COVID-19 protocol. 

    During the boot camps, teachers are to be developing standards-based, practical, and comprehensive lessons for units on sustainable alternative energies.  Time will be given each day to help guide the development of lesson plans.  

    Upon completion, and after fully participating in the institute, each teacher will receive a kit of supplies containing materials for all the lab activities done during the institute.  Teachers can also receive, upon completion of the institute, 45 Professional Growth Points (PGP’s) to apply on their Indiana Teacher’s License renewal. 

    All participants will be housed in a residence hall on the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology campus during the institute.  Meals will be provided through the Food & Dining Services (Café Bon Appetit) in the student union. 

    Eligibility Requirements:

    • Teachers must be active Indiana teachers teaching units on sustainable alternative energies in grades 4-12.
    • Teachers must be willing to reside on the Rose-Hulman campus for the week. (Nice apartments!)
    • The Duke Energy Boot Camp (July 11 – 16) has a requirement that priority will be given to teachers residing in a Duke Energy Service area.  
    • Priority will be given to teachers that have 0-10 years of teaching experience.

    IU Turnkey Courses on Moodle

    by Bob Jackson -

    The Indiana Department of Education has partnered with Indiana University High School to make available high school turnkey courses for Indiana teachers to implement. These are full courses, aligned to Indiana standards, that can be adopted, adapted, or adjusted by Hoosier teachers to meet the needs of students in their own courses. The courses can be implemented both synchronously and asynchronously, in a variety of models. Teachers can edit courses and add their own resources to supplement them as necessary in providing resources to their students.     

    The PRISM staff has put each of each of these courses into Moodle courses. The Moodle courses are available to all teachers. Teachers can request to be added as a participant to each course to preview resources and activities. Teachers can download Moodle backup versions of a course and restore on another Moodle server if needed. The PRISM team can also provide a teacher with his/her own version of each of the courses on PRISM's Moodle server. These courses can be found here.
