Remixing Your K-8 Science Curriculum For K-8 educators – June 6, 2020

Presenters: Dr. Salika Lawrence & Dr. Marisa Castronova
This hands-on workshop will guide participants as learners through simulated experiences that help reframe K-8 science classrooms as engaging environments that reinforce Culturally Responsive practices. Participants will learn that teaching science well to all students, while connecting lessons to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), requires frontloading and purposeful planning. In this workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to experience a NGSS classroom model that provides access and entry to all learners. After identifying and reflecting on the important components of the model, teachers will have the opportunity to reframe classroom activities to be Culturally Responsive and in the spirit of NGSS.

This workshop allows participants to explore how Culturally Responsive Pedagogy can be used as a framework for creating classrooms that engage all students and promote culturally sustaining practices. Presenters will identify techniques for differentiating and adapting traditional instructional practices to allow diverse learners access to the curriculum.
