Transforming science education through research-driven innovation
Calling all Middle School Science Teachers!
Are you interested in a high quality professional learning (PL) opportunity to support the enactment of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)-aligned curricula? Do you know other middle school science teachers who could benefit from an immersive PL experience designed to enhance both teacher and student learning?
BSCS is offering a fully-online PL course developed to guide teachers through our new body systems curriculum unit: A Medical Mystery. Part 1 (held in summer) engages teachers in developing an understanding of A Medical Mystery, developing an understanding of STeLLA® strategies as they are embedded in the unit, and analyzing classroom video of the units in action.
Part 2 (held in fall) supports teachers as they begin to use the unit with students. Teachers who continue onto Part 2 of the course will film themselves teaching the unit and will engage in video-based analysis-of-practice with their peers. A Medical Mystery supports middle school teachers in the effective instruction of an NGSS-aligned, EQuIP-reviewed body systems curriculum unit. Access the free unit here.
We are currently at capacity for the 2020 course, but you may sign up to be notified when the next PL is scheduled.
