Whether you’re new to teaching science or you’re a pro looking for more training, we can help you transform your teaching practices for the NGSS era. Spend four days with the district’s high school science specialists unpacking Ambitious Science Teaching practices designed to ensure your lessons are intellectually rigorous, engaging, and accessible for all of your students.


This workshop is an opportunity for individual teachers, course teams, and science departments to explore the new exemplar curriculum developed for the district, practice new strategies for the classroom, and grow as leaders. This will be accomplished through experiencing example lessons as learners, unpacking AST practices, classroom video reflection, a deep dive into the new science framework, and through having the space and time to engage with relevant pedagogy. Participants will receive a stipend of $600 for their time.
