Since the implementation of the GSE in 2017, Georgia teachers have continued to refine their understanding of what it means to integrate science content with science practices and crosscutting concepts. The focus of the 2020 GSTA conference is Broadening Our Horizons and will provide anopportunity for teachers to be immersed in experiences about 3-D teaching and learning, equity, assessment, and the integration of STEM and Literacy. This year’s conference is designed to continue to broaden our horizons as we grow and refine our practices as educators. Conference sessions this year will focus on sharing best practices, resources, and ideas based on the following strands:
