Exxon Mobil Corporation and the Phil Mickelson Foundation are pleased to announce the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy. In addition to the national Academy, there will be two regional academies. These five-day academies are aught by a distinguished faculty compiled through the National Science Teachers Association and Math Solutions. As a participant you will experience a fresh and engaging approach to many math and science concepts. The Academy faculty follow a philosophy of a learning cycle, the 5E teaching and learning model developed by Roger Bybee. It is based on the theory that students learn best when they are allowed to work out explanations for themselves over time through a variety of learning experiences structured by the teacher. The structure of the model demonstrates the benefit of teachers guiding students through a learning process that assists students in their understanding the critical subjects of math and science.
