Description

Push and Pull: Modeling STEM Strategies for the Early Childhood (K-3) Classroom

Led by​: Juliette Guarino Berg


This workshop will explore a range of active STEM learning strategies for the early elementary classroom (K-3). Workshop leader and science content specialist Juliette Guarino Berg will lead participants through the development of a NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) aligned unit plan - from how to develop an engaging essential question, to launching a hands-on experiment, and assessing growth and progress. The aim is to help students begin to think like scientists, and to build teacher’s confidence in developing effective science and engineering lessons regardless of background knowledge or expertise in STEM.

Participants will engage in student mode and teacher mode, allowing for deep reflection, translating standards into actual pedagogy, and also meeting other elementary-level teachers interested in STEM concepts. In the workshop we’ll focus on an example of a physics-related lesson exploring forces and motion. Participants will have a chance to work through the experiment in student-mode, and will then use an active learning strategy called “modeling science” to represent physical phenomena and share with peers. At the end of the workshop, participants will leave with several classroom-ready resources, and gain a better understanding of how to draw from existing assets such as literacy-based strategies to inform STEM-focused learning and instruction. Perfect for any early childhood or elementary classroom teacher - no science background necessary! This workshop provides CTLE Credits for participation.


Pizza lunch for all at 1 pm!

Note: Please sign up for ONLY 1 workshop on this date not both; As these both workshops are 3 hours and run simultaneously from 10am to 1pm in separate rooms at Teachers College.

WHITEBOARDS & T-SHIRTS

Whiteboards are currently out of stock. We will post a notice on our website and in Eventbrite when we have more to sell – probably within the next 2-3 months. If someone with a car would volunteer to devote several hours to helping us get whiteboards, it would be a big help. You can volunteer by sending an email to info@STEMteachers.org.

You can still buy T-shirts at the workshop, but you must have the exact amount of cash ( $10 each).

PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO RECORDINGS.

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.
