11/20 6-8 Science Collaboration Day

Spent the day with 6-8 grade science teachers.

Presentation used for the workshop here:

6th Grade discussed Summative Assessments

7th Grade Discussed their Weather Unit
Details Here:

8th Grade:
Skyped with a Vernier Expert
and met with Physics teacher at WGHS

Every grade level reviewed the Curriculum Drafts using the protocol found HERE and reviewed the timeline for implementation.

At the end of the day we began the conversation about "What goes where" in regards to science curriculum 6-8th grade.

We looked at various models proposed by the Next Generation Science Standards in Appendix K.

Here is that document:

Thoughts for next time included:
  • Share the unit progression prototypes
  • Google Apps in class
  • collaboration time
  • sharing of probeware across grade levels
  • add middle school to the drafts instead grade level?
