Science Project

nullThe goal of the UCLA Science Project is to design and implement programs that identify, develop and promote strategies that make good science instruction available and accessible to all students. Believing that good teaching begins with a life long commitment to learning, the UCLA Science Project offers several programs throughout the year designed to foster collaborative communities of researchers and practitioners. Through these collaborations, the UCLA Science Project aims to deepen teacher’s science content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge in order to better meet the needs of their students.

WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?

An NGSS-aligned workshop series for Middle School Science Teachers

PROBLEM DEFINITION:

I need a student centered, constructivist, equitable and engaging guided inquiry teaching pedagogy that embeds the NGSS scientific and engineering practices and Common Core Science Literacy Skills so that students can investigate, model and explain the 21st Century world.

SOLUTION:

Model Based Learning and instruction in Science. Come join the UCLA Science Project to learn about Model-Based Reasoning to begin integrating NGSS in authentic ways to support student learning.

A THREE DAY WORKSHOP WHERE TEACHERS:

• learn from a teacher-leader certified by the American Modeling Teacher Association
• engage in research-based pedagogy to support student learning
• develop a deeper understanding of the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices through modeling
• learn to assess student understanding just-in-tim
• network and collaborate with like-minded science teachers from the LA County

AUDIENCE:

While the target is Middle School Content, High School teachers are invited.

DATES:

3 Saturdays, 8:30AM - 12:30PM – November 8, December 13, 2014 and January 17, 2015

LOCATION:
