Incorporating Multiple Representations
Sun, April 23, 2017, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT
Incorporating Multiple RepresentationsLed by: Zhanna Glazenburg
Utilizing multiple representations helps students create a deeper and more thorough understanding of scientific concepts. When students build connections and explain their thinking using pictures, graphs, equations, and words they construct a much more profound understanding. Thus both Next Generation Science Standards and the redesigned College Board AP Biology, Chemistry & Physics standards place great importance on effective use and implementation of multiple representations of scientific concepts. The purpose of this workshop is to share some excellent strategies for incorporating multiple representation activities. This workshop will focus on how to integrate effectives strategies, and how to adjust current lessons and curriculum to authentically add in the use of multiple representations. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to engage in and review successful physical science examples. As well as, work in groups to practice designing their own multiple representation-informed models. Finally, participants will focus on reviewing and writing assessment questions (both formative and summative) aimed at using the multiple representation reasoning strategies as a way of illuminating student thinking and student understanding of concepts. High school physical science examples will be used in the workshop, however the strategies are highly applicable to any STEM educator grades 6-12.
Pizza lunch for all at 1 pm!
Note: Please sign up for ONLY 1 workshop on April 23rd NOT BOTH. As these two workshops are both 3 hours and run simultaneously from 10am to 1pm in separate rooms at Teachers College.

We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.
If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded, you must inform us when you check in at the beginning of the workshop. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.

Is there a fee to attend this workshop?
Yes. There is a $19.99 attendance fee.
For weekend workshops after January 1, 2017 the ticket price has increased from $16.29 ($15 plus $1.29 Eventbrite service fee) to a flat $19.99. To hold the fee below $20, we will now pay the Eventbrite service fee.
This small increase will help us move toward our goal of making STEMteachersNYC a fully sustainable organization. We appreciate your understanding and support and look forward to seeing you this coming 2017 season.
