Beyond CER Labels: Supporting Authentic Scientific Argumentation in the Classroom
Scientific argumentation is more than filling in boxes. Experience how students grapple authentically with competing claims, evaluate evidence quality, and are supported in the struggle to make their reasoning clear—all with examples from the newest curriculum from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, designed from the ground up for NGSS.11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Lead with Phenomena and the Three Dimensions Will Follow
Explore how instructional sequences designed around real-world problems can lead students to figure out phenomena using the three dimensions of science and engineering. Leaders from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science will showcase an example from the Hall’s research-based pedagogy and curriculum.12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Snails, Robots, and Biomimicry: Phenomena and 3-D Instruction for Grades K–5
Experience how students use models, analyze data, and gather evidence from text to figure out ideas about structure, function, and adaptive traits, to inspire their biomimicry designs. Join a hands-on dive into Amplify Science for Grades K–5, a new NGSS-designed curriculum from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science.
November 159:30 am - 10:30 am
Access and Rigor: Three-Dimensional Science for English Language Learners
What strategies and supports engage English language learners in the authentic practices of science and engineering, and ensure equitable access to deep learning in science? Figure out the answer to this question as you experience an Amplify Science instructional sequence and analyze it through an ELL lens.11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Embedded and Immersive Engineering
Discover how engineering is seamlessly integrated into the Amplify Science curriculum across grades K–8. Join the curriculum designers from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science to experience their cutting-edge approach to engineering and its connections to the NGSS.12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Light Waves and Skin Cancer: Phenomena and 3-D Instruction for Grades 6–8
Experience how students investigate the cause of the high rate of skin cancer in Australia, while figuring out how light waves interact with different materials. Join a hands-on dive into Amplify Science for Grades 6–8, a new NGSS-designed curriculum from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science.
