Science is a concept-based discipline. In this webinar participants will learn specific strategies to support deeper conceptual understanding for your students through inquiry. Strategies such as the use of a conceptual lens to stimulate synergistic thinking between factual and conceptual levels will help participants meet the intent of the Next Generation Science Standards as well as the new Colorado Science Standards. Have you wondered why the Next Generation Science Standards include Core Disciplinary Ideas to focus instruction? This webinar will clarify the idea-centered movement and help you teach for deeper, conceptual understanding. Join author and international consultant Lynn Erickson as she guides us through this effective approach suitable for any grade level.
