Re: [Phys-l] how to spend professional development money

Just for fun:
Let's assume you were a high school teacher teaching conceptual
physics, AP Physics B and robotics.
If you had $5,000 per year for three years ($15k total) to spend on
professional development, how would you spend it?

Let's further suppose that there is some metric for measuring
success in teaching conceptual physics, AP Phys B, and Robotics,
listed by school. It would be interesting to visit with the top
three schools so measured, to check out the methods of the physics
teachers there.

And, my predilection; visit the folks at Cornell, MIT, etc.,
or even better, Clarendon lab, Cavendish lab, and Faraday's lab
at the Royal Institution, to revisit your roots.
