Beth Mitchell

To promote the use of inquiry and research-based science education, Ms. Mitchell will attend an Earth Expedition field study hosted by Miami University and the Dragonfly Project. Through traveling to one of the global study sites and working side by side with research scientists, fellow educators, and community leaders, Ms. Mitchell will develop skills that promote greater student achievement, advanced critical thinking, and genuine engagement. The experience will also create opportunities for curriculum development through collegian collaboration within the science disciplines, across curriculum, and within the community.
