Scientific Communication: Helping Students Tell the Story of Their Research

March 2 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

Strategies, scaffolds, and sample student work to explore how we help students communicate and tell the story of their research!

Scientific Communication – Telling the Story of Your Research!

A Professional Learning Workshop for Solve for Tomorrow Teams

March 2, 2024 via Zoom (11:00am-2:00pm ET)

Led by Eric Walters, Tracy LaGrassa, Allison Mayle and Jason Sullivan

 

How do we convince others of the significance of our research? In this 3hr professional learning workshop we will look at strategies, scaffolds, and sample student work to explore how we have students write proposals and drafts, and engage in peer review; how students generate a quad chart/mini-poster to report what they did and how and why they did it, showing they understand not only their experiment, but also the rationale behind their experiment and where it fits into the bigger picture. Content will be adapted to the needs and experience of participants. 

 

During the workshop we will look at various rubrics and toolkits for translating student research and projects into clear and captivating stories in various formats, including oral presentations, written scientific papers, magazine-style writing, expo tri-folds or posters, podcasts, and more.  

 

There are many sciences, many ways to communicate, and many audiences to communicate to! With the understanding that participating teachers may also be at different points in their respective students’ research or project timelines, and have different target communication products, we will be inviting you to share a bit of detail about your project or research, your target audience and ideal product, in order to better tailor the workshop experience to your needs. 

This March 2 workshop is open to Samsung Solve for Tomorrow teachers. Please reach out for additional dates if/when the workshop will be offered again.
