Patterns Physics for the Next Generation: Texting and Driving (Unit 2)

Workshop Details

Date(s): May 13, 2020
Time: 8:30AM-3:30PM
Place: Lane ESD Main Campus (directions)
Presenter: Bradford Hill, Physics and CTE Engineering Teacher at Mountainside High School, Beaverton SD, Oregon
Audience: High school physical science and physics science teachers, and science/math/STEM teachers
Capacity: 30 participants
Fees: Free for Lane County high school science teachers, $150/day for teachers outside of Lane County
Goals:
  • Live the experience for Unit 2: Texting & Driving.
  • Engage in an experience that will allow you to make instructional shifts to better serve our students.
  • Participate in an ongoing professional learning community (PLC) of regional physical science and physics teachers making the curricular and instructional shifts called for in the NGSS.
Description: This course focuses on three-dimensional (3D) learning through intertwining the disciplinary core ideas of physics with the science practices and crosscutting concepts as described in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Teachers experience the patterns approach of using inquiry experiments as a mode to learn content and then apply what they have learned in engineering design tasks. The mathematical patterns of linear, quadratic, and inverse will be reinforced. Teachers will also learn how to structure their inquiry investigations with multiple designs to foster scientific discourse between students during the analysis of their data. Students will use technology to collect data and analyze data as well as use data mines and simulations when direct observation or collection of data is not possible.
Lunch: No lunch will be provided.
Prerequisites: None required. Attending Workshop 1 and 2 will provide important background, but is not required.
Notes:
All participants will be provided a certificate for PDUs based on the training hours.
