2021 GSTA Conference

"Building Connections"

February 1-6, 2021

Virtual Conference - more details to be released soon!


The next GSTA State Conference will be held virtually!  With the uncertainties of Covid and potential school budget cuts, we felt an online conference would best meet the needs of our membership. The theme for the conference is "Building Connections" and we are opening up proposals for sessions in October. Click here to make a session proposal.

The virtual conference will have multiple sessions each night during the week, 2/1 - 2/4, ending with a full day of sessions, short courses, and events on Saturday, February 6th. Share-A-Thons, social events, and awards will take place through an online platform as well.

We will be offering three short courses on Saturday, February 6th and we will open up registration soon.

Saturday Short Course: Creating Your Own Storylines (6-12) - Illinois Science Teachers Association Storyline Working Group

The Illinois Science Teachers Association is known for their biology storyline which has been shared nationally: https://www.ilscience.org/Storyline. They have formed a Storyline Working Group to share their planning strategies with teachers. They will offer a keynote session at the conference and will present a Saturday short course on how to develop storyline lessons. Teachers are encouraged to attend as grade level teams. Storyline lessons are lessons that use phenomena to coherently engage students in content, crosscutting concepts, and the science and engineering practices.This session will be geared towards 6-12 science teachers.

Join Page Keeley, author of the Uncovering Student Ideas in Science Formative Assessment Probes, Science Formative Assessment Strategies, and Teaching Conceptual Understanding as she provides insight to student misconceptions and how formative assessment strategies can enhance student learning. This session will be geared towards earth, life, and physical science teachers of grades K-12.
