High School Science Institute – 5 Practices (Lower Manhattan)


This institute is structured as a professional learning community, requiring active participation in session as well as approximately 1.5 hours of planning time before each session.

Participation in this institute will help teachers to hone skills required by the new NYS Science Learning Standards while the 1996 MST standards remain in effect for Regents courses. High school teachers from any science discipline will engage in an applied book study of 5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Task-Based Discussions in Science. The 5 Practices is a routine that helps students make sense of the science in cognitively demanding tasks through carefully designed discussion. The teachers will experience and practice using the 5 Practices prior to implementing their learnings in their own classrooms.

Please note these sessions will build upon each other. Registrants should plan to attend all sessions.
