Low Floor, High Ceiling experiences are those with BOTH easy access points for all learners (low floor), AND the potential for expansive thinking (high ceiling). They are tasks with space inside of them for learning to happen, and have been present in math learning for many years. In this online workshop, we pose the question, “What do Low Floor, High Ceiling experiences look like in science, and how can they foster a positive science identity for all students?” Participate in example activities, discuss the benefits and characteristics of this approach with your peers, and consider how to bring these ideas into your own classroom.
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.
