Localizing National Science Units


Mar 06 2024


3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Are you teaching or supporting science units that were created for a national audience? 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 for YOUR students?

IslandWood has been working with teachers, the developers of Amplify Science, school district partners, and Educational Service Districts on an approach to localizing national science units, and we’d love to share it with you! Join us and your peers to explore examples, consider resources, and think about what it would look like to localizing the science you are teaching this Spring.

30 min asynchronous work is due before the start of the 4 PM session

Additional Notes:

  • This is the same session we have presented at WSTA and NSTA conferences in 2023.
  • If you are teaching OpenSciEd units we suggest attending our “Introduction to Localizing OpenSciEd for Middle School Teachers” program instead of this one.
  • After completing this course, teachers will need to claim and pay for clock hours on PDEnroller.
