Let’s Do Some Science!

Join us for a half-day workshop introducing teachers to the

 three-dimensional approach to science learning based on

A Framework for K-12 Science Education. Engage in a

 model lesson, explore the Georgia Standards of 

Excellence, and identify phenomena for your students to 

explore. Three-dimensional learning is the research-based

 approach in which students simultaneously engage in

 science and engineering practices (e.g., engaging in

 argument from evidence) while learning and applying

 core ideas (i.e., GSE content standards) and crosscutting 

concepts (i.e., big ideas like patterns or structure & f

unction). The 3D approach is being promoted by our

 GaDOE Science Program Manager, aligns to the goals of 

the Milestones science assessments, and will provide the

 foundation for Georgia's revised science standards. You

 will leave the workshop with access to a collection of

 phenomena that connect student explorations to the

 current content standards, and a better understanding

 of how to apply the 3D approach in planning your science
