Saturday Seminar Series 2018-19: Emerging and Converging on Equity, Jan 26

December 10, 2018 - 8:55am
The Bay Area Writing, Science, and Mathematics Projects are creating the next generation professional growth experiences converging on the use of writing as a sense-making tool in the content areas.

We are emerging from our silos with a renewed commitment to help students understand the genres of language of math and science. To that end, we are generating new synergies to provide the teachers we serve with hands-on experiences to strengthen their capacity to support students communicating their conceptual understanding and reasoning. We need to do all this through a framework of equity.
