Climate Science for Grades 3 - 5 Teachers: Lewis County sub-region

Administered by ESD 113

Presenters

  • Tom Hathorn

Description

This course is for grade 3-5 teachers who want to learn about our state’s science standards and how they support students across multiple content areas. The course will focus on two key areas of the Washington State Science Learning Standards (WSSLS): (1) distinguishing between the Earth’s climate and its weather, and (2) using the practice of argumentation to engage students in figuring out how climate works. Teachers will work together during three face-to-face workshops, and will form “think-and-practice partnerships” with a few other teachers to support ongoing collaborative discussions about engaging students in argumentation.  Teachers will use tools from sciencepracticesleadership.com to identify ways that student argumentation is improving.
