June 12- 13, 2018

GPS K-4

Come experience the vision for K-4 science!

During this two-day opportunity, educators will explore the Arkansas K-4 science standards by engaging in a grade-specific phenomenon based investigation.  Student-focused learning through the integration of science, math and literacy skills will be highlighted. Two follow-up PD days will be offered along with opportunities for classroom-level support.  Connections to TESS: 1a, 1d, 1e, 3a-e, 4a, 4e

GPS 5-8

Come experience the vision for middle-school science!

During this three-day opportunity, educators will explore science phenomena, reflect on instructional strategies, and make connections to the new Arkansas K-12 Science Standards.  Student-focused learning through the application of science, math and literacy skills will be highlighted.  

NOTE:

Participation in all three days of this session meets the ADE requirement for Pre-Advanced Placement Science (Pre-AP) teacher certification or recertification.

This session DOES NOT fulfill the ADE licensure requirements to teach high school Physical Science - Integrated for high school credit at the 8th grade level. Two follow-up PD days will be offered along with opportunities for classroom-level support.  Connections to TESS: 1a, 1d, 1e, 3a-e, 4a, 4e

Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) is a language system used to describe the content complexity of learning expectations, instructional materials, and assessment items. The DOK Framework includes: 4 levels of content complexity - DOK 1, DOK 2, DOK 3, and DOK 4. The first half of the day will be an introduction that will provide context for the DOK framework, highlight common misunderstandings, and clarify DOK definitions. During the second half of the training, participants will break out into content specific groups (Literacy and Social Studies, Science, and Math). All participants need to bring materials (textbooks, curriculum maps, assessments, formative assessments, or assignments) that they plan to use in the coming year. A device is also required for this training.  TESS components addressed for this workshop include:   1F, 3B, 3D.

GPS 9-12

Grasping Phenomenal Science (GPS) for Grades 9-12 (Biology, Physical Science and Chemistry):  Navigating from Standards to Instruction

Come experience a new vision for the high school science experience!

During this three-day opportunity, educators will engage in phenomenon-based investigations aligned to the new Biology - Integrated course, Physical Science-Integrated and/or Chemistry-Integrated courses.  Student-focused learning through the application of science, math and literacy skills will be highlighted.  

NOTE:

Participation in all three days of this session meets the ADE requirement for Pre-Advanced Placement Science (Pre-AP) teacher certification or recertification.  Two follow-up PD days will be offered along with opportunities for classroom-level support.  Connections to TESS: 1a, 1d, 1e, 3a-e, 4a, 4e    Event # 343146
