For Middle and High School Science Teachers— Harvard Medical School’s Teachers Institute was funded by several grants, including core funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, from 1994-2003. The Teachers Institute provided professional development opportunities for Boston and Cambridge Public Schools middle and high school science teachers who were interested in using the case study method of learning with their students. The case method, used with Harvard Medical School students, was successfully adapted for grades 7 – 12. In addition to learning how to use the health-related, standard-based medical cases that were developed by HMS faculty in collaboration with educators, teachers received classroom science kits, professional development credits and stipends.
