One goal of Colonial Heights Schools is to increase Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) instruction throughout the division. Two years ago the seventh grade team at the Middle School developed and implemented an authentic problem-based STEM unit. The See Less Sea-Less Seagulls unit has received wide recognition in the local papers, as well as a number of commendations. The project was featured at the 2015 VASCD Annual Conference, and a paper about it was recently published in Science Scope—a nationally refereed journal on the topic of science education.
Most recently, the Virginia Mathematics and Science Coalition selected the See Less Sea-Less Seagulls unit as one of the 2016 Programs That Work awardees. This is prestigious award shared with only seven other divisions this year. Governor Terry McAuliffe recognized the seventh grade teachers at a reception for the award at the Library of Virginia in January. Joe Douglas, Kate Ewalt, Virginia Russell, Melinda Kelly, Allison Whitley and Bill Hortz attended the event.
You can read the nationally-published article on the project by clicking on the PDF Link.
We would like to congratulate Benson Yang for winning the CHMS and CHPS Division-Wide Spelling Bees! Good Luck in the Regional Spelling Bee in March!
