Event description
Centering Student Experiences and Inclusive Curricula in the Science Classroom

About this event

Come to be a part of a community of science teachers and learners that will reflect on where we have been, what we have learned and where we are going.

Questions we will explore:

  • What did we learn in 2020-2021?
  • How did remote and hybrid teaching and learning impact our practices and help us hone in on our values?
  • How are we critically reflecting on the 2020 uprisings?
  • How are we centering the lived experiences of students in our classrooms?
  • How are we building an anti-racist perspective into our curriculum and seeking to make the science classroom more inclusive?

Participants will explore the teacher’s role in engaging students in investigation and design. We will investigate strategies that put students at the center of their learning to fully engage, think deeply, ask questions, and apply their skills and knowledge to our society and natural world. We hope you join this group of thoughtful science teachers and learners to explore innovative pedagogy and inclusive curricula to make science more meaningful to all students.

This Professional Learning Community is for High School Science teachers and will meet for a series of Monday afternoon workshops from 3 - 5:30 pm. Each session will be crafted with the input of participants and provide opportunities to share and practice.
