Visible Learning in the Science Classroom

Workshop Description


How do we know when learning occurs? Every teacher strives to identify and implement what works best in the classroom. Come explore how to translate effective, research-based aspects of teaching into the science classroom. We will look at specific ways of making learning visible to help both you and your students navigate your 180 days together.  Strategies are applicable to all grades and will be explored using a variety of science content.
