|Time:||9am-11am; 1:30pm-2:30pm (office hours 2:30-3pm)|
|Presenter:||Charlotte Denis, Biology Teacher and Patterns Facilitator, Beaverton School District and Caitlin Everett, Patterns Facilitator, K-12 STEM Specialist, Beaverton School District|
|Audience:||High school biology teachers and other interested science teachers|
|Fees:||Free for Lane County high school science teachers, $150 for teachers outside of Lane County|
|Description:||This course focuses on three-dimensional (3D) learning through intertwining the disciplinary core ideas of biology with the scientific and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts as described in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Teachers experience the patterns approach of using inquiry experiments as a mode to learn content as well as how to integrate engineering and student-centered learning experiences, such as case studies and simulations, into their instructional design. Teachers will also learn how to structure their inquiry and engineering investigations with multiple designs to foster scientific discourse between students during the analysis of data. Students will use technology to collect and analyze data as well as use data mines and simulations when direct observation or collection of data is not possible.|
|Lunch:||No lunch will be provided.|
Total hours of synchronous workshop = 15 hours
Total hours of asynchronous work = 3-4 hours
In the workshop we will discuss in-person, hybrid, and distance teaching options for Patterns Biology. See below for Distance Teaching and Learning Resources from Spring 2020.
Patterns HS Science Distance Learning Resources for Teachers and Students – These resources were developed by district science TOSA teams and the Portland Metro STEM Partnership (PMSP) Physics, Chemistry, and Biology Councils. These Councils represent curriculum development leads and master HS teachers from Beaverton, Hillsboro, and Portland Public.
We are planning school year, 1-day in person or distance workshops to cover the remaining units. Dates and Times TBD.
All participants will be provided a certificate for PDUs based on the training hours.
