Tuesday, September 20: Looking Forward to New Science Standards, Process and Advocating for Feedback
Join us for discussions and information about the process in writing and selection of the new science standards, which is currently in process at the state level. Attendees will engage with three different speakers each with different input on how teachers can be a part of the process in reviewing the standards and providing feedback.
- Dr. Charles Aiken, DPI’s Section Chief for Math, Science, will talk about the timeline and process of adopting new science standards.
- Brian Maccarelli, Science Specialist for Buncombe County Schools, will discuss how to review the standards to make sure they align with the science framework and are appropriate for specific courses and grade levels.
- Manley Midgett, past president of NCSLA, and education instructor at Meredith College, will be letting members know how we can best advocate for all teachers having input in this process so the writing team has feedback to help guide their writing decisions towards a final draft.
Wednesday, December 7: The Draft is Here, Now What?
The first draft of the upcoming NC Science Standards has been released and in this webinar we’ll be getting an update and format of the new standards review and a quick review on what to look at to provide well thought out feedback. Time will be spent looking at the standards draft in grade level and content area bands with time to discuss the changes and what teachers will need to start preparing for the new standards.
