Student Sensemaking for Teachers
November 8 - November 18$700.00
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
This professional learning assumes the prerequisite completion of OpenSciEd Curriculum Launch professional learning and previous experience teaching an OpenSciEd unit. That being said, this event is open to all educators. We would recommend that you register for the OpenSciEd and edsUP Curriculum Pilot Launch that provides a blended approach with limited synchronous time and a reduced price. If you have limited experience with OpenSciEd, please expect an email from the event’s facilitators with a suggested self-guided learning task prior to the event.
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.
