New Orleans, LA
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Facilitated by: Chris Vargo, M,TLD and former 5th-8th grade science teacher at Einstein Charter School
Recommended for: All science teachers, but specifically geared towards 3rd-8th grade science teachers.
By the end of this session you will:
- Go through a model of a 5e exploratory science lessons.
- Dive into examples of rigorous student practice balanced with inquiry to invest students in content, build stronger retention, and teach conceptual understanding.
In your classroom, you will see:
- Your students more engaged in lessons.
- Students retaining more content, more effectively applying their knowledge to rigorous problems, and explaining the conceptual understanding behind their content.
Description: We will explore activities and framework for understanding how to change students’ perceptions of “who are scientists,” “what scientists look like,” and “what scientists do.” We will explore activities around students exploring their personalities and interests to invest them in science careers.
** Attending the 12/10 session (Investing Students in Science Careers) is strongly recommended
