OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT

This program is designed to help you put into practice the foundations of your student-owned science classroom.

Establish (or re-establish) the building blocks of a classroom where students are empowered to own their learning from the first spark of curiosity to their ultimate “aha!” moment.

Cultivating Curiosity is a great teacher reboot to review and reflect on the fundamental shifts in NGSS-style instruction. It’s not an overload of content but rather, an opportunity to explore our thinking and consider a few strategies to better embody a three-dimensional, student-owned science approach!

OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT

Authentic engagement is the foundation for all true learning. We can talk at our students, we can assign work, and we can issue consequences for failing to comply… but we can’t actually make our students learn. We can’t make them think.

Learning is a two-person job… and it requires the active engagement of the learner. So how do we get that active engagement?

In the Amplify Authentic Engagement workshop series, we will be exploring the basics of engaging and motivating our students to become self-driven learners in order to set the stage for the transition to a more student-owned science experience.

Reimagine science instruction and empower your students to own their three-dimensional learning.
