Who:  Any science teacher grades 6 - 12

What:  This PD will focus around the book Ambitious Science Teaching. The book is organized around four sets of core teaching practices: planning for engagement with big ideas; eliciting student thinking; supporting changes in students’ thinking; and drawing together evidence-based explanations. Discussion of each practice includes tools and routines that teachers can use to support students’ participation, transcripts of actual student-teacher dialogue and descriptions of teachers’ thinking as it unfolds, and examples of student work. The book also provides explicit guidance for “opportunity to learn” strategies that can help scaffold the participation of diverse students.

When:  October 6;  8:30 - 3:30

Where:  Family Resource Center

Why:  For all of us to improve in the practice of teaching the sciences.
