Editor's Note: Another great opportunity to hone your Nemeth code skills! Project INSPIRE is a tried and true method to learn or enhance your skills. "INSPIRE" is an acronym for Increasing the STEM Potential of Individuals Who Read Braille. This course is geared for teachers working with middle grades and includes Nemeth code and strategies for supporting your middle schoolers in general education STEM-related courses. Do you need a refresher on using/teaching a graphing calculator? How to construct different types of graphs? This 6-week online course covers it all! Summer is the perfect time to work through this 6-week course at your leisure. Take advantage of this amazing training opportunity!
