• Implement the plan for shifts toward phenomenon-based 3-D science teaching


    The following opportunities will be offered in the 2023-24 school year, summer of 2024, and possibly 2024-25 school year:

    Guided Review of Potential High Quality Instructional Materials

    Designed for teams of four to six individuals who have already completed at least one Phase 1: Make the Case engagement opportunity and preferably have participated as a team in the Phase 2 offering of Planning for Professional Learning around Science Standards: Strategically Building Capacity for Sustained Practice: Work directly with the science coordinators from the Allegheny Intermediate Unit Math & Science Collaborative (AIU MSC) to vet potential High Quality Instructional Materials (HQIM) for science. Please contact Dr. Corinne Murawski or Kristen Rice directly regarding this opportunity. There may be a fee for this service.

    Sharpen Content-Specific Knowledge

    Enroll in a 1-2 day streamlined content-specific course to sharpen your knowledge; courses will begin in either Spring 2024 or Summer 2024.

    Strategic Communication of Vision

    Inform the community of your district’s undertaking during a parent, caregiver, and/or community information session. Work with AIU MSC science coordinators to design and implement strategies for best communicating the district’s vision for shifting towards more “figuring out” in K-12 science classrooms. This will be rolled out in Spring 2024.
