For Election Day Professional Development.
This is a full 6.5 hr work day. All science teachers are expected to attend. If you do not attend the full day, you must put in for a personal day in AESOP. Make sure the signin/signout sheet reflects the times you attended.
            We are at ESUMS in West Haven. ESUMS is at 500 Boston Post Road in WEST HAVEN, the driveway to the parking lot (upper or lower) is off of Rockview Street/corner of Rockview and Daytona, say 44 Rockview Street in your GPS… There is about 100 parking spaces and there are 120 of us, some carpooling is advisable to avoid parking in UNH lots across the street.

Some info:       No food provided :(and VERY IMPORTANT!! NO FOOD/DRINK ALLOWED IN CLASSROOMS/LABS!! We have had issues with science teachers leaving messes in rooms and cafeterias the last year or so.          USE CENTER STAIRCASE ONLY!.
            Please bring your own laptop/device if possible. Many of the sessions use technology, and although the school is tentatively letting us use some of theirs, it would be easier for presenters if you had your own device.

            Please bring some things to share… the midday sessions are for you to share ideas by curriculum/grade level area, and unit, so bring some copies/handouts of activities you use or are thinking of. We also will use that session to generate more ideas on district assessments. Please bring or access the info from the last CIAs and the science mastery rubrics. I will expect everyone to fill in part of a Google Doc with ideas around phenomena, activities, NGSS type assessment questions, etc... specific to a unit in the curriculum.
            Please come prepared to be engaged and interactive. All the facilitators have been asked to make sure to make their sessions interactive, but of course that depends on the audience being respectful

(2015-17 curriculum facilitators have edit access, all others have view access)

-Investigate what is in your folders...

Pick a unit or part of a unit and try to identify something to share:

            Phenomena, activities, sequence of learning events,

            performance assessments,

            district assessment questions (mc/essay with rubrics) ,

that teaches students a practice (use Science mastery rubrics  www.newhavenscience.org/NHPSScienceMasteryScoringCriteria.pdf


 or how to figure something out not just learn about.


Be sure to identify the NGSS PEs, evidence statements https://www.nextgenscience.org/evidence-statements, connections, etc..

Save that document with links to activities or drop word/pdf copies into the upload folder https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1AkgO9tIvb6G9cshBTs2baqnlRYzAB8s_?usp=sharing
