Amgen Biotech Experience Fall PCR PD, Oct 27

2 hours 58 min ago
Brand new! This one-day workshop will train experienced teachers on a new addition to the ABE curriculum: PCR. This lab is intended to follow directly after the Complete Series of the ABE curriculum. Teachers must have been previously trained in the ABE Complete Series and must be planning to use the Complete Series in their classes to sign up for the PCR workshops. Workshops are limited to 20 teachers and are available on a first-signed-up-first-served basis. If the workshop fills, priority will be given to teachers who have already signed up to teach the Complete Series with their class(es). Workshops will be held at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley. Follow the links below to sign up. Please only sign up for one workshop. We will allow for repeats only after these initial trainings, as space permits.

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

2 hours 58 min ago
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.
