Talking, writing, and drawing are powerful tools that help students make sense of science and take ownership of their learning. Join us to explore strategies that work in online or in-person settings.
In this online workshop, you will build your repertoire of strategies to support students in constructing explanations, communicating ideas, and tracking their own learning. Session participants will act as learners and explore what it’s like to use these strategies to do their own meaning-making. We will then debrief the experience, highlight the strategies we used, and provide resources that empower participants to implement them in their classrooms.
This workshop is designed for teachers of grades 4 - 12. All educators are welcome.
