Science Notebooking and Content Knowledge Support (SNACKS)

In response to specific needs of local school districts, CSATS and school district administrators and teachers have developed a comprehensive, multi-phased "train-the-trainer" professional development program to increase student science and literacy skills and enhance K-12 teachers' skills with inquiry-based teaching through the incorporation of "science notebooking" into their science teaching.

CSATS' Involvement:

  • Developing and implementing the SNACKS Program
  • Providing on-going teacher professional development workshops for participating districts which includes:
    • Inquiry-based teaching support
    • science content knowledge support
    • literacy skills support
This generous Thematic Initiative Fund (TIF) funded project brings together Bald Eagle School District and Bellefonte Area School District with CSATS faculty and staff.
