Our fellows discussed explanation and argumentation as they relate to Science and Engineering Practices.
They also delved into their units with some thoughtful reflection time.
We had a great day and enjoyed the awesome thoughts and ideas from our Cohort 2 fellows! We will see you at the May 12th UnConference!

Prompts for Integrating Crosscutting Concepts
Integrating Science Practices
It was great to see our fellows for our October professional development. We spent the morning having an engaging discussion through Skype with Todd Campbell and Wayne Melville, the authors of the book “Reimagining the Science Department”. After lunch we spent time going over Unit Plans and Assessments, giving and receiving feedback from our peers. It was a day filled with captivating discussion, feedback, and as always fun!
Take a peek at the work our Fellows did this Summer! Though work continues throughout the school year, let’s celebrate what we have accomplished!
The first Hangout was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who joined us. We really enjoyed all of the conversations and the awesome ideas our fellows had to offer. Hope to see you at the next one which is on October 5, 2016!!
