Kellehr and Martin attend workshop

Thirty science teachers from across Maryland converged on Frostburg State University this summer for the Improving Teaching Quality Through Training Opportunities in Physics and Physical Science workshop. TOPPS is a residential program designed to enliven the teaching of physics and physical science at teachers' home schools.

Attending from the Carroll County area were Heather Kelleher, of Francis Scott Key High School and Don'a Martin, of North Carroll High School.

Middle and high school teachers participate in the program to upgrade their content knowledge, integrate technology into their lessons and develop their teaching strategies and practices. The workshop emphasizes teaching methods and scientific content. The content area this year was kinematics, sometimes called the geometry of motion.
