The challenges of teaching during the past year have exacerbated achievement gaps and the underlying inequities our students face during instruction. As we emerge from the pandemic, we face both new and previously existing challenges in teaching science. Fortunately, there is clear research and well-tested instructional strategies that can help us create engaging classrooms where all students can achieve in science!

In this workshop, teachers will:
• Explore strategies for increasing student engagement in learning science
• Engage in examples of three-dimensional learning aligned to the NGSS
• Discover ways to maximize rigor and critical thinking for all students
• Learn how to maximize instructional time and monitor student achievement
