Event description

Description

Join PASTL* teacher leaders for this professional learning opportunity for K-12 science educators who want to expand their understanding of matter and energy (to build content knowledge), explore the NGSS K-12 progression around energy and matter (to share a vision for student learning), and how to support students in developing their understanding of energy-and-matter stories in science classrooms (to improve pedagogy).

Participate in 3 sessions of your choice, each of which foregrounds energy-matter stories and aligns with one or more of our showcase objectives.

Showcase Objectives

  • Mindset: Question your current understanding of energy and build your teacher content knowledge.

  • Vision: Develop a vision of energy learning for students within NGSS K-12 progressions.

  • Pedagogy: Experience concrete ways to work with students to develop ideas about energy and matter.
