Title Description
Exploring Scientific and Engineering Practices (SEPs)


Get ready to implement the SEPs (Scientific and Engineering Practices)! Explore the eight essential practices used by scientists to investigate phenomena and by engineers to design solutions. Discover how these practices are embedded in the revised science TEKS, and share ideas for implementation.


Intervening Low Level

Problem Behaviors


This session will support teachers in determining what the function of a student's behavior is and how to implement an intervention strategy that matches the function. Join us for laughter and learning as we role-play scenarios that model strategies you can use in your classroom!


Supporting ALL Learners in Science


What are the barriers to student success in science? Can we proactively remove those barriers with strategies that make science accessible for all? Yes! Explore and practice using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to create more inclusive science learning experiences.


Supporting ELs in Online Environments


Explore strategies and techniques that support and scaffold ELs as they learn content and acquire English during distance learning. Participants will experience strategies that foster interactions among ELs at all proficiency levels.


Valuing the Versatility of Vocabulary 


Embrace vocabulary strategies through technology tools that can be used in all situations: face to face, virtual, and hybrid. Versatility is vital as we continue to navigate an ever changing world. Accessible vocabulary and collaborative processing spaces for students are key to building as many brain pathways as possbile while also fostering student ownership and empowerment.
