Using Models in the Chemistry Classroom

Visualization is difficult for many students. Join me for a discussion and demonstration of several modeling activities you can use in your chemistry class. This session is targeted for novice/intermediate attendees.

Materials needed:

Takeaways: 1. What modeling looks like in a classroom; 2. Modeling resources to use with students; and 3. Shortcomings of models.

NESTA and CLEAN 2: How to Teach with Climate Data and Tools

Experience tools and data sources that help learners connect climate science content to local and global phenomena.

Note: Attendees will need the ability to stay in the virtual session while exploring new tools online simultaneously, so split-screens or multiple monitors would be helpful but are not required. Presenters will not have the ability to correct internet issues or the inability of attendees to access resources presented that might arise due to time limitation. So please keep in mind firewalls and administrative privileges before the session.

Takeaways: Participants will: 1. walk away with peer- and science-reviewed resources they can immediately integrate into their teaching; 2. walk away with strategies for engaging students in collaborative explorations of climate data; and 3. experience materials as learners that help make thinking visible.

Speakers

Lin Andrews (National Center for Science Education: Oakland, CA), Jessica Bean (University of California, Berkeley: Berkeley, CA), Mark Chandler (Columbia University: New York, NY), Louise Huffman (U.S. Ice Drilling Program: Hanover, NH), Cory Forbes (University of Nebraska-Lincoln: Lincoln, NE)

ASTE-Sponsored Session: Methods for Methods—Elementary

Come learn from your peers and discover how you can help contribute to and curate tools and resources for teaching elementary science methods. Participants are asked to bring an idea, activity, assignment, or resource to share with colleagues.

Participants will work with technology tools only during this workshop (jamboards, etc.).

Takeaways: 1. Meet/network with other science teacher educators; 2. Learn new ideas, activities, or strategies from peers; and 3. Be able to access additional information and contribute to the 'Method for Methods' collection online.

Speakers

Debi Hanuscin (Western Washington University: Bellingham, WA), Tina Vo (University of Nevada, Las Vegas: Las Vegas, NV), Dr. Dieuwertje Kast (USC Joint Educational Project: Los Angeles, CA), Sumreen Asim (Indiana University Southeast: New Albany, IN), Nazan Bautista (Miami University: Oxford, OH)

ASTE-Sponsored Session: Balancing Act: Bridging Content Pedagogy with Equity Issues in Methods Courses

This session will bring together science teacher educators to share strategies and resources to support the professional development of preservice middle and high school teachers.

During this workshop, participants will discuss and share ideas, syllabi, digital tools, or lessons about how to teach secondary science teacher preparation methods classes.

This session is for college faculty who prepare teachers or mentor secondary science teachers who work with preservice teachers in clinical experiences.

Takeaways: 1. Perspectives on balancing science content, pedagogical content knowledge, and methods in courses for preservice science teachers; 2. Strategies for addressing issues of social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion in preservice science education courses; and 3. Ideas for adapting these content and practices for face-to-face, hybrid, and online delivery in courses.

Speakers

Ryan Summers (University of North Dakota: Grand Forks, ND), Xinying Yin (California State University, San Bernardino: San Bernardino, CA), Lauren Angelone (Xavier University: Cincinnati, OH), Stephanie Philipp (The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga: Chattanooga, TN)
