You Mean I Am Supposed to Teach Science, Too?

  1. 1. You Mean I Am Supposed to Teach Science, Too? Diana Dell, Ed.S Educational Technology Consultant [email_address] Vince Szewczyk Educational Technology Consultant [email_address] SqoolTechs, LLC http://sqooltechs.com SqoolTools.com http://sqooltools.com
  2. 2. Session Description: In 2008, expanded MAP testing begins in Science. The grade-span tests will be administered in Grades 5, 8, and 11. With the push to meet AYP in communication arts and math, many teachers have been forced to skimp on science instruction. Are you in need of resources to help prepare your students for the upcoming Science MAP tests? Attend this session to discover online science tools and resources that have been aligned with the GLEs.

  3. 3. <ul><li>Why did you choose this session? </li></ul><ul><li>You have been forced to skimp on science instruction due to the demands of meeting AYP in math or science. </li></ul><ul><li>Your textbooks do not address all GLEs and you are in need of additional resources. </li></ul><ul><li>You understand that technology engages students in the learning process. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Study after study confirms that engagement is an essential ingredient of learning and achievement. Elementary teachers report that only 8% of instructional time is devoted to science. Why Science? Why Interactives?
  5. 5. Guiding Questions: What types of FREE digital resources are available for teaching science? How can the resources be integrated into instruction? How are resource organized? How can we work together to meet MAP Science Goals?
  6. 6. What types of web-based resources are available for science? <ul><li>Interactive tutorial sites </li></ul><ul><li>• Interactive quiz sites </li></ul><ul><li>Games for many topics </li></ul><ul><li>• Flash and Shockwave demos </li></ul><ul><li>• Video clips </li></ul>
  7. 7. How are resource organized? Resources are organized by grade level and the units of instruction that are recommended by DESE.
  8. 8. What about Inquiry and Science, Technology, Human Activity? DESE recommends that these strands should be made a priority and integrated throughout every teaching unit in each of the other strands. http://dese.mo.gov/divimprove/curriculum/GLE/SciGLE_FINAL-4.2005.pdf
  9. 9. How can the resources be integrated into instruction? <ul><li>Included in units of instruction </li></ul><ul><li>A supplement to textbook materials or district curriculum resources. </li></ul><ul><li>As review and test preparation </li></ul><ul><li>As independent activities </li></ul><ul><li>For differentiation of instruction </li></ul>
