GK12 project teams are disseminating information, knowledge, and lessons at regional, national, and international meetings (e.g., AAAS, Neuroscience, Georgia State Science Teachers Association) as well as through publications. Teachers and graduate students co-authored articles published in NSTA’s Science Scope (Turner & Shamsid-Deen, 2005) and the American Journal of Health Education (Closser & McManus, 2005). Team members will present two invited workshops and twelve posters, papers and demonstrations at the international problem-based learning conference in Peru. Two books co-authored by graduate student and teachers are being planned. Lessons developed by PRISM fellows and teachers can be accessed at CASES Online (http://www.cse.emory.edu/cases). Educators can search for cases by different grade levels, subjects, and topics, and then download materials for classroom use. The cases address learning objectives across the sciences and meet state and national science education standards. In December 2005, we hosted the Southeast Regional GK-12 Conference for 90 graduate students, undergraduates, teachers, faculty, and staff from twelve GK-12 sites. Participants discussed solutions to common problems, exchanged innovative lessons, and shared strategies to promote inquiry-based science. Breakout sessions were organized by grade level and role, and a panel discussed strategies for evaluating the impact of GK12.
