This course is designed for any teacher in Washington state who wants to learn more about the first 3 EALRs in the Washington State Science Standards and how they connect to the Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers will develop a deeper understanding of systems thinking, the multiple ways of doing science (inquiry) and the design process (engineering). Teachers will also gain multiple tools and resources for teaching students about these practices and crosscutting concepts.
I am a former research technician working in biotechnology and a former elementary teacher. I currently work as a consultant and professional development provider for school districts in the Puget Sound region of WA State.
I also teach science methods courses in teacher education programs and supervise student teachers.
I share resources and ideas on my blog Science for All .
