The Partnership to Reform Inquiry Science in Montana (PRISM) grant seeks to develop and strengthen the pedagogical and content understanding of grades 3-6 teachers associated with science in all partner schools within the Region III Southern Montana Alliance for Resources and Training (SMART).
The goal is to improve student achievement in science by providing grades 3-6 science teachers with immediate understandings and support for research-based applications in inquiry methodology. To accomplish this, STEM faculty and Science Education faculty from Montana State University Billings, LEA Faculty and Administrators, and Region III SMART schools will partner in the TRIAD model of professional development to achieve a better understanding of the delivery of science content through inquiry-based procedures.
The PRISM grant is funded through the Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI) and is a function of the Southern Montana Alliance for Resources and Training (SMART) housed in the Montana Center for Inclusive Education at Montana.
