    Celebrating Phenomenal Science 

    We invite you to bring your best, innovative examples of Phenomenal Science to share with others at the GSTA Annual Conference. 

    Strands

    • Phenomenal 3D Teaching, Learning and Assessments: Since first implementing the Georgia Standards of Excellence in Science, teachers have been making the instructional shifts necessary to enable students to move from learning about science to using science to make sense of phenomena and figure out solutions to problems. Sessions in this strand will focus on investigations, lessons, assessments, performance tasks, and other resources that engage students in the integrated use of the three dimensions. This strand will also focus on the use of phenomenon-based formative assessments and the resulting data to accelerate learning by addressing knowledge gaps. 

    • Phenomenal Virtual Learning: The 2020-2021 school year gave many teachers the opportunity to teach in a new virtual space. Whether synchronous or asynchronous, teachers experienced new challenges and successes in acclimating to virtual or hybrid teaching and learning. Sessions in this strand will focus on teaching practices and resources that support interactive, engaging phenomenon-based three dimensional teaching and learning in a virtual or hybrid classroom.

    • Phenomenal Literacy in Science: The forefront of every Georgia Standards of Excellence for Science is to “obtain, evaluate, and communicate information.” This science and engineering practice illustrates the natural fit between science and literacy. Reading, thinking through, writing and sharing information are all critical aspects of making sense of phenomena and designing solutions to problems. Sessions in this strand will focus on evidence-based literacy practices that support students’ use of the three dimensions to make sense of phenomena.

    • Phenomenal Science for All: Students have diverse experiences, assets, and abilities that support their engagement, curiosity, and motivation in the classroom. Sessions in this strand will focus on teaching practices and learning experiences that promote the success of all students and enable them to make personal connections to science as they make sense of phenomena.

    • Phenomenal STEM/STEAM: Effective STEM/STEAM education uses an interdisciplinary approach to help students learn and use 21st Century skills to make sense of and design solutions to real world problems. Sessions in this strand will focus on curriculum, programs, partnerships, and approaches that effectively integrate science, technology, engineering, arts, and math to support phenomenon-based student learning.

    Submission Details:

    The 2022 annual conference will be held at the Hilton Peachtree City Conference Center on February 10 - 11, 2022.  Virtual sessions will be held on Saturday, February 12.  Session proposals will be accepted through October 29, 2021.  Members or nonmembers may submit a maximum of 3 session proposals.  All presenters must register and pay for the conference, which includes one year of GSTA membership, upon acceptance of the session proposal.  If you are a current GSTA member, then please log into your account before submitting your proposal.
