Using Science Notebooks – Back to School Webinar Series
August 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm PDT
Science notebooks are a key component of the OpenSciEd middle school science program. Notebooks provide a space for students to record investigations and communicate their ideas about phenomena. They are also a record of how students’ ideas evolve over time. Developing a science notebook can create a sense of ownership from students with respect to their intellectual work in the classroom. It can also be a valuable formative assessment tool for teachers. In this webinar, we will highlight the supports for science notebook use built into the instructional materials and talk about the tips and tricks that make them powerful for students and teachers. The webinar will feature two veteran OpenSciEd teachers who bring experience with using notebooks – both paper and digital versions.
OpenSciEd Teachers – Lauren Pasanek and Tommy Clayton
OpenSciEd Team – Sarah Delaney
