Ever Evolving Science Standards (Maine121.org Webinar)

Ever Evolving Science Standards facilitated by Phil Brookhouse
Weekly Thursday Webinar
February 16, 2012
3:15pm and 7:15pm
Science teachers are guided by the Maine Learning Results, AAAS Benchmarks, and the National Science Education Standards. But, in many cases, they deal with just the standards, and not the reasoning behind the standards. By utilizing the full texts and the Strand Map of Science literacy, participants will be able to look at the relationships among the specific standards they are using and how they relate to the standards for the other grades and content areas. The Strand Map also gives reference to textual and web-based resources related to various standards, and includes information about student conceptual problems.
Participants will be able to access the Maine Learning Results, AAAS Benchmarks, and the National Science Education Standards, and the Strand Map online, as well as the recently released A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas. Participants will be able to use the web-based Strand Map of Science Literacy (based on the 2 volume Atlas of Science Literacy.) inform their science teaching through the Maine Learning Results, AAAS Benchmarks, and the National Science Education Standards. We will also examine web-based resources related to science education standards.
