Are you looking for strategies that help you to put your students at the center of your teaching? Join us for a week long program where you can learn additional ways to uncover & respond to student thinking and build additional facilitation skills that put the focus on students using the science practices to explain their world. We join forces with neighboring summer science programs so participants in this workshop will observe and lead discussions in a lab school environment for part of the day and then spend the rest of the day learning how to incorporate science talk skills and 3-dimensional pedagogy. Participants will develop, test, and leave with a set of lessons and strategies they will implement when they return to their own classrooms for the 2020-2021 school year. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to join STEMteachersNYC’s robust and growing network of elementary level educators. The STEMteachersNYC network provides informal and formal opportunities for participants throughout the year so you can continue developing strategies and interacting around successes/challenges encountered during your implementation of what you learned this summer.
