THREE-DIMENSIONAL LESSONS: ADAPTING A TRADITIONAL LESSON TO SUPPORT THREE-DIMENSIONAL TEACHING AND LEARNING
Presenter: Peter McLaren - Next Gen Education, LLC
This full-day workshop will bring educators through a process where they will adapt a traditional lesson to support three-dimensional instruction. Educators will bring along a lesson to which they are familiar and learn how to integrate science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts. Educators will use tools and templates designed to help facilitate the adaptation process.
Date: Saturday, May 5 from 9:00-3:00 Cost: $10
Location: Middletown High School, 200 La Rosa Lane, Middleton, CT
