Engaging in developing and using models in this webinar!
Join us for this professional learning experience facilitated by Arizona science teacher leader Robyn Yewell, Arizona State Finalist for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST)! Robyn will facilitate this interactive professional learning experience using a 5th grade lesson that incorporates multiple science and engineering practices, but primarily focuses on modeling, the crosscutting concepts of patterns and scale, proportion, and quantity, within the earth science core idea of E2 (connected standard 5.E2.U1.7).
Objectives of learning experience:
Explore how to engage students with a phenomenon to launch a learning sequence that incorporates the Science & Engineering Practice (SEP) of Developing & Using Models and two Crosscutting Concepts (patterns and scale, proportion & quantity)
Explore a few digital strategies to help students to develop, revise, and use models based on evidence to construct explanations.
Deepen understanding of what the SEP of Developing & Using Models incorporates and how it relates to the AZ Science Standards
