FTSG Co-Facilitators

Generally, each of our grade-level field test study groups (FTSGs) is led by a pair of co-facilitators. One co-facilitator is a Lansing elementary school classroom teacher and the other is either a member of the Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University or a Lansing School District Elementary Science Teacher Specialist (ESTS). Of course, like so much else in this adoption effort, there are exceptions to this general plan. For example, the kindergarten FTSG has two co-facilitators from MSU and decided among its members not to designate one classroom teacher as a co-facilitator. Also, the second-grade FTSG decided to have two teacher co-facilitators.

The following table indicates who the co-facilitators are for each grade-level group, where they're from, and their e-mail address.
