#NSTA22 – PLI-3: OpenSciEd Storyline Units: Supporting Three-Dimensional Learning Linked to Students’ Interests, Ideas, and Questions

July 20 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Learn how the NextGen Science Storylines approach is implemented in the OpenSciEd Middle School Science Program. Storylines are coherent from the students’ perspective, in which students see their science work as making progress on questions and problems their classroom has committed to address, rather than simply following directions from textbooks or teachers. Participants will experience key Storylines routines as a learner, reflect on them as an educator, and learn how they embody principles of equitable instructional design. As part of the reflection, participants will have the opportunity to analyze student work and classroom video. Examples will be drawn from Unit 6.4, “What Causes Earth’s Surface to Change?”, and other middle school OpenSciEd units.
