Scientific Models: Build engagement and deeper sense-making

Program Description

Models can open up new worlds for allowing students to reflect their understanding of phenomena, especially for second language learners. They can also serve as great jumping off points for deepening student thinking and for motivating communication.  But learning to use them in new ways takes time.  In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to participate in a series of activities that demonstrate some rich new ways that students can engage in the science and engineering practice of modeling.  

Join with peers from your teaching grade level, as you look at the vertical progression of this practice and how you can better implement it into your classes and explore how it relates to the other science and engineering practices.
