Instructional Resources

Bring engaging, hands-on activities to your science classroom! The RiSE Center supports teachers in using  research-supported, community-vetted instructional resources across grade bands and content areas. The material kits are built to support instructional resources listed.  Renting a kit from the RiSE Center means you will receive a personally packed science kit specific to your classroom with textbooks, science materials, online subscription, and teacher generated supporting documents.  $15/student

Registration for resources for the 2019-20 school year opens in January 2019.

Resource Training: Required for teachers new to our resources!

The RiSE Center requires annual training for all teachers who are new to using RiSE Resources, but this opportunity is also available for those looking for a refresher in the materials. This training, held the week of August 12, is a series of one day trainings specific to content/grade level allowing for those who teach several subjects/grades to attend a day specific to their content/grade level.  During your training you will be introduced to your new science kits and have the opportunity to connect with other teachers who are experienced with using the materials.  Teachers will collaboratively walk through each resource and the support materials that go along with it. Teachers will also have the opportunity to demo lessons, go through the first kit, and begin planning for the start of the school year.  All teachers have the option to continue meeting with this group during the school year.
