The Framework promotes learning as a fundamentally social endeavor supported by collaborative and communicative norms. Yet, sustaining these norms requires all members to articulate, make sense of, and evaluate each other’s ideas, making discourse tools vitally important. Walk away with ready-to-use tools that foster productive talk around big science ideas!

Thursday, Feb 2 - 4:00PM
Room:  Laurel Amph.
Presenter:  Heather Milo

With NGSS being taken up by educators across the country it can be easy to lose sight of student interest and identity in the search for NGSS-aligned curricula. Join us for an engaging workshop on storyline coherence as a means to not only align pedagogy with the standards, but also build on students' ideas and questions about the natural world.
