OHIO SCIENCE PD 2A
New standards, new assessments and more rigorous expectations are the challenges educators face today. Participants will learn how to support students as they learn and use science content and practices . Participants will develop deeper understanding of the New Learning Standards and Next Generation Assessments. This program includes multiple sessions each focusing on specific content and skills throughout the school year.
Participants will implement the newly learned skill in their classroom between classroom sessions. Reflective summaries will be provided for each day of learning. Participants will be observed as they practice the new information or strategy in their classroom. Participants will also share their learning experience during debrief sessions.
Participants will teach newly learned science content by doing at least two of the following:
Teach students how to construct effective claims and evidence responses
Assess student responses and provide students with feedback for improvement
Effectively use the practices as a means to teach concepts
Develop performance tasks and assessments on an electronic platform
Use close reading strategies in their lessons and assessments
Use formative assessment techniques prior to instruction
Use differentiated science lessons
Use engineering design process
Use differentiated centers
