The ABCs of Hands-on, Minds-on Learning (grades K-12)
Discover a surprisingly simple strategy for designing hands-on investigations that truly help build students’ scientific knowledge and skills.
In this highly interactive online workshop, you will explore the power of ABC: Activity Before Content, and CBV: Content Before Vocabulary. This research-based teaching strategy centers student thinking and supports NGSS learning, whether you’re teaching online, hybrid, or in-person. You’ll have the opportunity to evaluate current curriculum and make adjustments to improve learning outcomes for students. This workshop will be interactive, with both whole group and small group activities.
This workshop is designed for teachers of grades K-12, and to be valuable for educators teaching online, hybrid, or in-person. All educators are welcome.
