Faculty notes: Ashmann, Entwistle
Scott Ashmann, associate professor in Education, has co-authored an article in the current issue of Science & Children, the elementary school journal of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). The article is co-authored with three participants (Darcy Marcou, Melissa Lange, and Andrea Konitzer – a recent UWGB graduate) from the Einstein Science Institute for Elementary School Teachers (ESI4EST) Project, which is directed by Ashmann. The article describes not only the teachers’ experiences during the summer Institute, but also the results of their science teaching that occurred in their respective classrooms during the subsequent school year. The ESI4EST Project has been selected as a model for professional development by the NSTA.
The Northeastern Wisconsin Dance Organization again produced a fully staged version of the “Nutcracker Ballet” at the Meyer Theatre in Green Bay. The performance again showcased the handiwork of UW-Green Bay Theatre Design Prof. Jeffrey Entwistle, who designed the scenery for the show and continues to expand on previous editions with each new year.
