Description

This stack is designed to provide teachers of science at every level with an overall understanding of the science and engineering practices and how to successfully integrate these practices into content-based instruction. Scientific practices engage students in planning investigations, using mathematical thinking, analyzing and interpreting data, designing and using models, and developing evidence based arguments to understand the natural world. Engineering practices help people address needs and problems through the engineering design process.

What You’ll Learn

You will learn how to integrate science and engineering practices into your science content instruction.

Who Should Apply

  • PK12 teachers of science,
  • instructional coaches,
  • and other education support professionals
