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.
