The SFVSP holds Summer Institutes and monthly workshops with leadership from university instructors, teacher leaders and master teachers. The institutes and workshops include sessions by university faculty and hands-on activities grounded in research-based practices that are designed to enhance teacher effectiveness. The emphasis is on biology, chemistry, earth and physical science with direct links to the California State Science Content Standards. The project incorporates strategies for English Language Learners, which model how science can be used to improve student achievement. The project emphasizes methods of access for all learners through a variety of strategies, integrating best practices with approved materials available.
