Growing Inquiring Minds in Science - CANCELLED

Professional Growth Opportunities

We know we want our science students to extend their learning beyond what we can directly teach them. We want our students to experience being scientists and doing science, crawling up Bloom’s taxonomy rather than simply learning about science, but how do we get them there? This workshop will explore processes to move towards an inquiry stance within student-directed learning and beyond.

Participants will:

  • Learn to teach students how to develop questions and skills needed for authentic inquiry.
  • Use Bloom’s taxonomy as a framework for moving students to deeper levels of thinking.
  • Explore assessment practices.
  • Identify and access technology tools that aid student collaboration, data gathering and sharing of knowledge.

Audience: Grades 6-12 science educators.
