COURT HOUSE – Middle Township School District will welcome Dr. James “Butch” Rosser, author of “Playing to Win: A Surgeon, a Scientist and Parent Examines the Upside of Video Games,” for two days of training and discussion around Rosser’s innovative curriculum inspired by the validated pedagogy of instruction called Stealth Learning.
Stealth Learning uses rap music, cinema, video games, drones and more aspects of our pop culture to speed students’ acquisition of STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) skills and knowledge. His curriculum has successfully improved the standardized testing scores of Florida students, and now with a $150,000 grant awarded to Concerned Citizens of Whitesboro and coordinated by O.C.E.A.N. Inc., he is partnering with Middle Township School District to replicate his methods for a group of fifth-grade students.
The students will meet for 10 sessions after school at the Whitesboro Grammar School prior to the former NJ Ask Science Assessment, which has yet to be renamed for the current academic year.
Day 1: Stealth Learning Training with Dr. Rosser, eight Middle Township teachers and four Middle Township high school students, who will help administer the grant.
Oct. 5, 9 a.m. – noon and 1-3 p.m.
Whitesboro Grammar School, 100 E. Main St., Whitesboro
Day 2: District wide and community presentation by Dr. Rosser on Stealth Learning
