93. 'Live' Online - Engaging Students Using Phenomena - Based Science Instruction - Presented by Brian Vorwald

Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: Grades K-12 Science Educators and Chairs

Dates: 10/27/2021

New
The three-dimensional approach of the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) places an emphasis on phenomenon-based learning in which students use observations of the natural world to construct their own explanations (for science) or to solve problems (for engineering). Selecting observable, interesting, motivating, and complex phenomenon can drive student inquiry. A goal is student-directed, but teach-facilitated, instruction that embeds the three-dimensions in the NYSSLS. This sense-making process facilitates all students building deeper and more useable knowledge of the three dimensions. We will consider the phenomenon-based strategies that will transform instruction of current curricula to the NYSSLS approach of three-dimensional learning. Included will be:
• Characteristics of good phenomena
• Using phenomena to capture students' interest and to motivate them to construct their understanding of science ideas
• Resources to find phenomena
• The difference between an anchor phenomenon and a lesson (instructional) phenomenon and how they are used.
• Tools to evaluate phenomenon-based lessons for alignment with 3D teaching
• Lesson planning templates
