Liz Naughton, Megan Liebman, Hannah Dye, Deb Sullivan, and Tracey Osterman – Elementary Math
Increase your math knowledge exponentially with sum math talk. Come hear third, fourth, and fifth graders construct viable arguments about CCSSM
John Flanagan – Middle School Science
I helped start up an English Language Development Science program at Davidson for newcomers and limited English students who wouldn't have been able to take science in the past. In this session, I'm sharing some slides of what the students are doing, along with several other slides with instructional advice and resource ideas. If you can't stop by, check out the PPT through the iTeams website!
Mary-Clare Neal – Middle School Math
I will be presenting my growth in supporting student discourse and meaningful discussions through the use of inquiry questions
Molly O'Donoghue, Edgar Gutierrez, Sarah Zykanov, Chris Gonzales, and Colin Johnson – Elementary Science
From Pre- to Post-test, discover how English Language Learners develop language to describe how the internal and external structures of living organisms aid in survival throughout the various California Regions.
Angela Hood, Jenni Conte, and Rachel Ehrlich - Elementary Science
Through hands on exploration, students are able to express and refine their science knowledge to reflect their understanding of science engineering principles. We will demonstrate over 6 engineering/math challenges how the scientific discourse was refined through iteration and has positively impacted both logic and writing in the classroom.
iTEAMS is a professional development research project designed to provide teachers with support to deepen their content knowledge and pedagogy to promote STEM education aligned to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
