Physical Science Content Workshops
These are weeklong workshops dealing with the underlying scientific principles behind the content standards in the CT Science Framework. Participants will be taught through the inquiry method. The goal of these workshops is to help participants deepen their understanding of these scientific principles through inquiry.
This is a five day content workshop focused specifically on standard 4.3, which focuses on the concept of erosion. During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to experience multiple inquiries that will guide you to a deeper understanding of this science concept. In addition, you will then have the opportunity to process the inquiries as a teacher and discuss their applications in your classroom and in your students’ learning. You will also experience the integration of language arts and science through vocabulary, non-fiction texts and science notebooking. Come for the week and collaborate with other Grade 4 teachers across the state, as you design and develop your own inquiry-based lessons to be used in your classroom with your students.
