Phenomena-based Science, Your Students and Your Materials
Join teacher leaders trained by OpenSciEd to experience an OSE middle school unit that asks the question, “How do changes in the Earth’s system impact our communities and what can we do about it?”. Apply instructional ideas to your own classroom and your district’s science materials.
During this series participants will:
- Engage with NGSS-focused, Ambitious Science Teaching practices and OpenSciEd instructional routines
- Analyze adopted instructional materials for opportunities to enhance with NGSS practices and routines
- Consider local, climate-related phenomena to add to units and participate in affinity groups to identify enhancements to your current materials
