Start Strong in Science: Back-to-School Blitz!!!

Monday-Tuesday, July 31-August 1

 

Join us for a two-day, back-to-school workshop featuring ready-to-use, high yield instructional strategies to help you start the school year strong. We will focus on four topics: Classroom Management; Literacy in the Science Classroom (Elementary or Secondary); Formative Assessment Tools for Science; and Building Academic Vocabulary in the Science Classroom. Participants will attend all four three-hour sessions presented by Region 4 Science Specialists. Lunch will be provided each day accompanied by an optional breakout session. Technology Tools for your Classroom will be held during lunch on Day One and a Q&A session with Region 4 Education Specialists will be on Day Two.

 

Aligned with T-TESS Domains of Learning Environment and Instruction.
