  Abstract: This talk will focus on the Modeling Theory of Physics as developed by the modeling group at ASU (led by David Hestenes). I will discuss the research underpinnings of the curriculum, the curriculum itself, and the models used in the curriculum. Discussion of the workshops where teachers can learn the modeling technique will be discussed and information on how to apply will be given. Finally some results from the modeling workshop project on student learning will be given.
