STRAND: Students and Sensemaking

Show Details

Join us to learn how OpenSciEd materials can help you build science learning experiences anchored in compelling phenomena and meaningful community and global problems. This PLI will introduce you to the first unit in the OpenSciEd High School physics course. You will experience firsthand how the unit is driven by student questions, you will put on your “student hat” to feel what it’s like to be a student whose thoughts and questions help drive learning forward in the unit, and reflect on coherence in the unit by unpacking the unit storyline. You also will gain a birds-eye view of the structure of units for all three courses of OpenSciEd– biology, chemistry, and physics– and discuss the routines and resources that promote equitable science learning in high school. Additional follow-up sessions throughout the conference will dig deeper into other courses in OpenSciEd and provide practical strategies for implementing OpenSciEd in your classroom.
