Flyer at https://goo.gl/kqgUHy SaturdayNovember 32018UC RiversidePhenomena-based Learning and Student-centered Instructional Strategies (Colleen Duncan & Martin Baxter)Experience a 3-dimensional (DCI, CCC, SEP) learning sequence using an everyday phenomenon and modeling to demonstrate how NGSS instruction links driving questions, observations, investigations, analyzing data, developing and revising models, and explanations from evidence. The 3 NGSS dimensions and instructional strategies are compared across the grade levels. SaturdayDecember 152018UC RiversideStudents Planning and Carrying Out Investigations Through Argument-Driven Inquiry Process (Dolly Bergen & Martin Baxter)Learn a process in which students plan investigations using the 8 stages of Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) including developing and evaluating models. Experience instructional strategies to support students during each stage.    SaturdayFebruary 92019UC RiversideCER to Help Students Build Better Arguments (Colleen Duncan & Martin Baxter)Experience the Claim Evidence Reasoning (CER) framework as a learner and also learn instructional strategies for using it in the classroom for students to build arguments and scientific explanations. The use of modeling in these techniques will also be practiced.     SaturdayFebruary 232019UC RiversideDiscourse and Modeling (Sara Yeh & Martin Baxter)Explore how modeling and discourse support student talk and student thinking. Learn strategies you can implement quickly to enhance the student discussions during investigations, whole group conversations, or while developing consensus models.  SaturdayMarch 22019UC RiversideEnglish Language Learners and the CA NGSS (Debbie Figueroa & Martin Baxter)Review how the major instructional shifts in the CA NGSS helps English Language Learners (ELLs), discuss language demands and learning opportunities as ELLs participate in the science and engineering practices. Tools and resources will be practiced and provided to help ELLs with science learning and engineering challenges.
