Intro to PD topics for the year: Science Conversations and Science Learning: what research shows.

 

Intro Video:

8th Grade class, given instruction on ingneous, metamorphic, sedimentary rocks. Some practice with “science talks” (how rocks are formed). Rules for science talks include to be a good listener, but teacher admits that often just meant be silent till you can talk/question.

 

 Task: Day one, discuss with groups, Day two: build model of rock cycle

Teacher is helping a more organized group in classroom, this group is in the hallway.

 

 2 min in: What suggestions should she give the group?

What do you think about how she intervened?

7 minutes in: What do you think of the students’ summary/progress?

11 min in: What about her explanation with shoe?

 

 

After this video:

 

Do you think that science talks could help you as a teacher figure out students’ learning?

How can you structure science talks?

 

Also:

         Examine the pacing guide for the year to see if there are any issues/changes.

(Chem decided: quarter one: physical/chemical changes, matter, basic atomic structure

quarter two: periodic table, nuclear, compounds/bonding)

 

(Physics decided: quarter one: motion (up to 2D), quarter two: forces   circular motion moved to spring.)

 

         See what other data you need from CMT/CAPT.
