Partnership Guidelines

The CCC has developed guidelines to facilitate the creation of Scientist-Teacher Partnerships and the support of long-term classroom collaborations.

Our Pairing Meeting Guidelines provides an outline for introducing Scientists and Teachers to each other for the first time, as well as discussing important logistics (relevant to our local school district).

Our Partnership Recommendations also provides helpful suggestions and reminders about how Teacher and Scientists can share their areas of expertise with each other and their classrooms.

Journaling is essential for science, and it is also a great resource for educators. We encourage our CCC Participants to use our CCC Log Sheet to keep track of their experiences, successes, and challenges. They are a great resource for discussions during our CCC Meetings.

We hope you find these resources helpful, and that you share your experiences and feedback with us!
