Elementary teachers will become credentialed as Project Lead The Way Launch Teachers. Develop the conceptual and instructional understanding you’ll need to guide students as they engage in cross-disciplinary activities and develop skills related to problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and perseverance.
Oregon Science Teachers Association (OSTA)
During this webinar you will learn about tools that you can use to shift your instruction. We will begin with anchoring phenomena and using and organizing student questions to drive instruction. Tools for student discourse, using whiteboards for developing models and explanations, and monitoring student understanding over time will be shared. Student work samples will also be shared, so you can see what the tools look like when they are being used. These tools can be used with lessons you are already using.
Space Science includes the classical field of astronomy, but also astrophysics, cosmology, rocketry, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, and more. It is a field that captures the attention and enthusiasm of students of all ages.
Science educators face the wonderful, yet daunting task of teaching such a dynamic and constantly changing field. And they need to challenge, dazzle, and inspire a generation that has ‘seen it all’ on a little screen.
