November 8, 2022 - November 18, 2022

This Student Sensemaking professional learning supports science teachers in advancing their understanding of the OpenSciEd approach generally while going deep into a specific science unit (6.2 Thermal Energy, 7.2 Chemical Reactions and Energy, or 8.2 Sound Waves). Learning is designed to deepen content knowledge, planning, instruction, and data analysis practices. Included in this session are opportunities for teachers to:

  • Reflect on successes and challenges of implementation of OpenSciEd units
  • Identify OpenSciEd key instructional elements for teaching and learning
  • Examine classroom video and artifacts from OpenSciEd units in relation to the key instructional elements
  • Engage in the actual lessons of the unit as a student

In an effort to increase accessibility for teachers, we are offering this event at three different time slots (or cohorts). All sessions are virtual. Please select the cohort you wish to attend when registering. If you are interested in the Facilitator version of this event, please click HERE.

We are trying out a new model for delivering professional learning during the school year. We are hopeful that all the sessions will fill, but if you sign up for a session that doesn’t fill, you will be given the option to either join a different session or receive a full refund.
