Your help could further MMSA’s vision of a brighter STEM future for the State of Maine and the nation. Today, I ask you to support MMSA and become a part of the movement to support exciting new ways for our youth to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math.
Have you already started working with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Framework for K-12 Science Education? Are you looking for the next step? In this virtual book study, we will dive deeply into a powerful framework for science teaching to ensure that instruction is rigorous and equitable for students from all backgrounds. Participants will attend four virtual study group sessions and participate in asynchronous book discussions to collaboratively deepen science teaching practices. The book, Ambitious Science Teaching, by Mark Windschitl, Jessica Thompson, and Melissa Braaten, outlines a toolbox of strategies for teachers who are striving to meet the considerable challenges that have been set for them. The practices presented in this book are being used in schools and districts that seek to improve science teaching at scale, and a wide range of science subjects and grade levels is represented. Join us to deepen your toolkit for meaningful science learning.
This workshop is ideal for K-12 teachers.
