Event description

Description

Each of our Reflective Planning Days (RPD) will focus on themes that are intended to support you in improving your science instructional practice as well as supporting your science instructional leadership. Each RPD will include two main components.

Part 1. You will, once again, engage in our Critical Friends Group (CFG) process to analyze student work and support your continued implementation of NGSS through Ambitious Science Teaching practices. CFG rounds will be shorter than in previous years to allow some time for leadership reflection, support, and planning.

Part 2. There will be time to reflect on leadership experiences and receive support to adjust and implement the plan you developed at our summer institute to support your colleagues' learning about AST and NGSS.

To each RPD, please bring:

  • Your laptop or tablet, charging cable
  • Your lunch, snack & water bottle
  • Student work artifacts with a related problem or challenge of instructional practice:
    • One class set of student work samples from your most recent AST-focused unit of instruction. These samples should be a task where students were asked to write and/or draw some piece of an explanation related to the unit’s phenomenon.
    • Be sure you identify examples that illustrate your questions or wonderings about your students’ work, their experiences and understanding, and/or about the instructional task or tools.
    • Instructional Leadership artifacts with a related problem or challenge from your science instructional leadership work:
      • Reflect on any leadership opportunities you have had since the last time we met, and/or come ready to discuss the next step(s) in your leadership plan.

Please bring (if available): examples of materials you have used or intend to use (e.g. charts/posters created during workshops or team meetings), other artifacts that could exemplify your context and work with teachers, and/or any “problems of leadership practice” related to improving science instruction (e.g., official student data, school improvement plan connected to science, TPEP, surveys, etc.)
