1. 6-8 Science Network

Program: RPDC - Northwest

Location: 5 To Be Determined (To Be Determined, MO)

Audience: 6-8 Science Teachers

Dates: 8/31/2022 to 3/8/2023

Each new school year, teachers ask themselves, "What do I need to focus on and what can I do differently to improve?” Come join us as we network with other middle school teachers to answer this question. Network participants will:
* Analyze Item Analysis reports for challenging areas
* Network to improve challenging areas and current issues
* Analyze and tweak challenging area and current lessons
* Analyze and tweak challenging area assessments
* Become aware of current Science Updates

Optional graduate credit is available

3. The Science Practices: Understanding what they are and how to utilize them within lessons

Program: RPDC - Northwest

Location: 5 To Be Determined (To Be Determined, MO)

Audience: 6-8 Science Teachers

Dates: 9/28/2022

Knowing our state science standards are composed of the 3-dimensional learning: science/engineering practices, core ideas, and cross-cutting concepts, it's important that we teach, practice, and assess all 3-dimensions. Come join us as we dig deeply into one of the 3-dimentions: The Science Practices. Participants will explore 4 of the 8 science practices, gain strategies for their classrooms, and apply knowledge to lessons.

Session 1: Asking Questions Sept. 28
* Learning how to empower students to ask questions themselves. Questions that prompt curiosity, understanding, learning, and transference of knowledge.

Session 2: Planning and carrying out investigations Dec. 7
* Using the instructional model, Learning Cycle (5Es) to plan student centered investigations

Session 3: Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions Jan. 31
* Justifying answers using the claim, evidence, reasoning (CER) strategy

Session 4: Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information Apr. 5
* Strategies to gather and communicate results thoroughly

Sessions are independent, however, they will build upon each other. You must register for each session separately.

4. 3-5 Science Network: Understanding and Implementing the MO Science Standards

Program: RPDC - Northwest

Location: 5 To Be Determined (To Be Determined, MO)

Audience: 6-8 Science Teachers

Dates: 9/29/2022 to 4/6/2023

Each new school year, teachers ask themselves, "How do I tie Science into the other content areas I teach? How do I plan and teach science to best support the 5th grade Science MAP assessment? Come join us as we network with other 3-5 science teachers to answer these questions and more. 3-5 Science participants will:
* Analyze the 5th Grade Item Analysis report for challenging areas
* Unpack and understand the grade level Missouri standards and how they apply to the classroom
* Learn ways to integrate science into other content areas
* Collaborate in the revision of science lessons to incorporate an effective instructional model as seen in the Continuing Science Education Playbook
* Analyze current activities and investigations for rigor and alignment
* Explore ways to assess formatively and tweak current assessments for alignment and rigor
* Become aware of current Science Updates

Optional graduate credit is available
