Show Details

In this session we will discuss the strategies, approaches and the findings from an 18-month statewide project for systems-level change for content integration anchored in science. This project was created by the Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction in collaboration with The Lawrence Hall of Science. Participants will engage in hands-on experiences, discussions, and presentations to learn about essential features for mutually supportive content integration and to reflect on and share their own efforts to advance content integration in their contexts. They will explore and take away the tools and strategies used in the project with teachers and instructional leaders and will have opportunities to share the conditions of their own contexts, reflect on how the strategies employed in this model may apply in their own systems, and identify entry points for beginning and/or advancing implementation.

Teachers and leaders will gain insight into the principles and definitions of content integration with science as the anchor and explore tools, strategies, and system-wide approaches they can use in their own context in order to identify their next step towards content integration.
