North Dakota teachers hit the classroom themselves in Minot

MINOT, N.D. - Teachers from across the Peace Garden State joined at Minot High's Central Campus get some training that will put learning in the hands of their students.

The National Science and Math Initiative is hosting their fifth annual training in North Dakota to educate teachers on how to make their lesson plans more interactive, engaging, and student-led.

“The teachers come here with two different lenses, or two different hats as I like to say. They get to experience from the teacher perspective on what they get to do in their classroom, but also from the student perspective of what would I be doing as a student and really get to engage in the lessons that way,” said Toni Schneider, a Senior Manager with the National Science and Math Initiative.

The training cost was covered by a grant to the state, making it free for teachers to attend.
