'Having It Your Way'
Are you ready to learn how the Next Generation Science Standards will change what
we do in science education? Do you know how to make students’ increasing desire
for customized learning part of their daily classroom experience? Bringing these
challenges together sounds a bit like merging Star Trek’s Next Generation with a 'Have
It Your Way' fast food campaign. We’ll tackle the merge in this one-day workshop!
Participants will walk away with a clearer understanding of the conceptual shifts infused in the Next Generation Science Standards, as well as ways to provide the learning of science in a choice-rich environment. The strategies for differentiation are based on two books co-authored by Jeanna Scheve during her years of science teaching, Yes ! Can and Understanding Learning Styles.
Participants, please bring a laptop/mobile computer and a science lesson/unit sample from your classroom.
