Introduction to Localizing OpenSciEd for Middle School Teachers


Mar 18 2024


4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Are you teaching or supporting OpenSciEd Middle School units this year? Have you been identifying local “related phenomena” with your students but wondering what else you could be doing to connect the unit to our region and your student’s communities? Would you like some help in thinking about how to make the units meaningful and relevant to your middle school students?

IslandWood, Olympic ESD, and Northwest ESD have been working with teachers, developers and school district partners on an approach to localizing national science units and we’d love to share it with you! Join us for this FREE introductory workshop on Monday, March 18th from 4 – 5:30pm on Zoom. The session is worth up to 2 clock hours (1.5 STEM & .5 Equity) for those who also reflect on an asynchronous reading.

Those who attend will have first priority to register for our free day-long in-person session where we will support you in applying the approach to an OpenSciEd unit of your choice.

Where: Zoom – Link will be sent to registrants ahead of the course date.
