Are you a secondary teacher looking for resources for your classroom? Join this team of educators in sharing their experiences of tools and routines designed to support students' sensemaking.

Students Teaching Students
Students can learn so much by teaching each other. Give them a challenging conceptual question that they can debate after choosing initial answers (with cards or free software). Ask the question again when debate is done, and students will likely have all arrived at the correct answer!

Integrating Anchor Phenomena as Engagement and Assessment
Phenomena are an essential element to science teaching. But, we often do not refer back to them in our unit! Come see how a biology and chemistry teacher not only use them as anchors, but also incorporate them as part of an end of unit assessment!

Are you a secondary physics educator looking to inspire learners of space and the electromagnetic spectrum? Join this team of three educators as they share experiences and resources. Smithsonian DataLabs: Online laboratories for student analysis of light, color, and other worlds Find out about two free evidence-based online laboratories that support science and engineering practices in high school physics, earth and space science, and chemistry classrooms - The Spectrum Lab, and DIY Planet Search - and online workshops for educators who want to use them. Radio Frequency Allocation in the Classroom - An EM Spectrum Activity for the Big Kids Go beyond your basic electromagnetic spectrum lesson and challenge your students to consider one of the world's most sought-after limited resources: radio frequency bandwidth. Everyone uses it, so give students a chance to learn about EM waves in the 21st century! Introducing Superknova This session will provide information on the free curriculum offered by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory on Superknova. You will also learn how to stay in touch with the curriculum specialist at NRAO so you and your students never lose an opportunity to engage with our staff.

Anna-Margaret Bruton (Project Director: Broader Impacts: Charlottesville, VA), Mary Dussault (Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian: Cambridge, MA), Jamie Avalos (O.D. Wyatt High School: Fort Worth, TX), Valarie Bogan (Curriculum Specialist)
