Investigative Science Learning Environments: Exploring NGSS-aligned Approaches to Teaching Physics

This workshop will explore the ISLE Approach of instruction in the STEM classroom and how to create an environment in which students can discover and learn physics for themselves.

NGSS/NYSSLS-aligned Strategies for Mastering the Physics Regents Exam and Beyond

This workshop will provide participants an opportunity to engage in NGSS and NYSSLS-aligned strategies to communicate key concepts and problem-solving approaches for NYS Regents Physics.

Making Sense of Word Problems in Math Class (Grades 7-12)

This workshop will explore a variety of student-centered approaches to problem-solving in the math classroom.

Three Dimensional Unit Planning Using NGSS

In this workshop we will be using all three dimensions of NGSS to design a coherent and conceptual unit plan that will foster enduring understanding of not only content but the big ideas in science.

Computational Modeling in Physics with Bootstrap/Pyret

This workshop will provide an introduction to the coding program Pyret and explore a framework for teachers to understand how computational thinking can be used as a learning tool in physics.

Energize the energy story! A new way to think about energy in the biology classroom

This workshop will explore key methods to help students understand how energy, a key cross-cutting concept in the Next Generation Science Standards, can be represented by the unified idea of energy storage and transfer in the biological world.
