Middle School Partnership (MSP)

Through MSP, EICES works with NYC Title I middle schools, training teachers to develop hands-on, inquiry-based, ecology-driven curriculum units with an accompanying teacher resource plan and assessment rubric to promote student-centered teaching and learning. Project-based learning is used for more effective student-centered teaching (and learning). It enhances the acquisition of skills in science, math, literacy, analysis and cognition, and it encourages students to engage in creative interdisciplinary thinking, problem solving, and team work.
