Saturday Seminar Series 2018-19: Emerging and Converging on Equity, Mar 23

February 15, 2019 - 8:48am
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.

Ten Minutes to Improving Science Achievement (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 12

February 15, 2019 - 8:48am
The word “assessment” can strike fear into the hearts of teachers and students. Join FOSS developers to learn how assessment can be transformed into an integrated teaching tool that both teachers and students grades 3–8 embrace to create a classroom culture that motivates effort and growth mindset to improve learning. (Gr 3¬8)

FOSS for All Students—Access and Equity (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 12

February 15, 2019 - 8:48am
Providing equitable learning opportunities for all students requires knowing the curriculum, understanding the diverse needs of students, and responding effectively to those needs. Join us for a closer look at how the FOSS program provides both universal access and targeted instruction for your most vulnerable students. (Gr K¬5)

Wave Properties and Information Technologies (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 12

February 15, 2019 - 8:48am
Engage in activities using lasers and optical fibers in the new FOSS Next Generation Waves Course for middle school. Explore the phenomena of refraction and reflection that allow information transfer by fiber optic technology, and identify connections to the three dimensions of NGSS. (Gr 6¬8)

Exploring Kinetic Energy Transfers in Collisions! (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 12

February 15, 2019 - 8:48am
Plan and carry out a collision investigation to explore how potential energy and kinetic energy are related. Engage as students to make sense of data to develop an understanding of energy transfers in the FOSS Next Generation Gravity and Kinetic Energy Course for middle school.

Argumentation and Explanation in FOSS Grades K-5 (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 12

February 15, 2019 - 8:48am
Investigate phenomena and experience how students create models, construct explanations, and engage in argumentation from evidence in FOSS lessons. Explore how these NGSS science and engineering practices complement and reinforce each other to enhance student learning. Leave with instructional strategies to support student sense making. (Gr K¬5)
