About this event

Summer Teacher Professional Learning Workshop Session Dates:

Dates & Times: July 5,6,7,12,13, & 14, 9am to 5pm daily at Queens Botanical Garden

Explore phenomenon-based learning with Queens Botanical Garden! The focus of this course is providing successful science experiences for students of varying backgrounds. As we examine the ins and outs of soils and how things sprout, we’ll explore our own and our students’ identities. You’ll leave this course having learned additional science content as well as methods for engaging and supporting students from traditionally marginalized populations. By the end of the class you will have backwards planned a unit of either phenomenon-based or problem-based instruction that you can use in your classroom.
