In this session we’ll explore the importance of
integrating engaging and relevant hands-on learning opportunities into your
science instruction to ensure the best student outcomes.
1. The importance of integrating an ample amount of hands-on learning opportunities into instruction to successfully engage students in doing and learning science; 2. How to promote active learning by encouraging students to collaborate, think critically, and explore science, all within the context of a coherent phenomenon storyline; and 3. How hands-on learning opportunities support standards, make science accessible to all learners, promote deeper understanding, and prepare students for college and career readiness.
