Web Seminar

Join us on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM ET for another seminar in the Book Beat Live! series.

Three-dimensional learning calls for students to not only learn disciplinary content, but also to engage in the practices and habits of mind of scientists and engineers. Science notebooks are a powerful and flexible tool to support three-dimensional teaching and learning as well as a way to connect students with the work of actual scientists.

In this session you will meet Jessica Fries-Gaither, author of NSTA’s Notable Notebooks: Scientists and Their Writings, Exemplary Evidence: Scientists and Their Data, and the new Science Notebooks in Student-Centered Classrooms. Jessica will draw on her published works as well as her teaching experience to address:

  • Why science notebooks. Science notebooks provide a wealth of benefits for students, including opportunities for data analysis, sensemaking, and authentic literacy development.
  • What notebook philosophy best supports 3D teaching and learning. Not all approaches to notebooks are created equal. Learn which philosophy and model best aligns with the vision set forth in A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards.
  • How to get started with a notebooking practice. Learn strategies that you can implement in your classroom tomorrow, regardless of your previous experience with science notebooks.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.
