Additional Science Workshops


March 4, 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. / In-person at Monroe One BOCES
The New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) emphasize 3-dimensional teaching and learning that incorporates Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Cross Cutting Concepts. This session examines how these standards are structured and how the instructional shifts change the way that science is taught in the classroom to help students move from learning facts to making sense of the world around them. This workshop provides a required foundation for participating in deeper, follow-on workshops on specific topics, such as SEPSs & CCCs, PLDs, 3-D assessments, etc. 

The workshops below are scheduled by request. Please contact Lisa Zeznick at lzeznick@boces4science.

Science “Look Fors” …. Especially for Administrators

The New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) have changed how science should be taught. How will you know if your school’s science education is aligned to the NYSSLS and 3-dimensional science instruction? This session provides an overview of specific shifts in the teaching of science and what administrators should “look for” when visiting classrooms.
Date: Scheduled by request
Time: One hour
Location: Online (Zoom)
Presenters: Steve Montemarano & Lisa Zeznick

What’s the Story with SEPs and CCCs?

Join us as we jump into the NYSSLS Science & Engineering Practices (SEPs) and Cross Cutting Concepts (CCCs) Progressions! We'll collaborate on products illustrating how the SEPs and the CCCs grow in complexity across grade levels. You'll head back to school with the SEP and CCC visuals we create, and you will be ready to turnkey this workshop, if desired!
Date: Scheduled by request
Time: 3 hours
Location: Determined upon request
Presenters: BOCES 4 Science Instructors
Audience: K-12 Teachers of Science

123s of PLDs

Join us as we figure out how to help our young scientists excel! We will use the NYS Performance Level Descriptions (PLDs) to evaluate and revise a lesson. You will walk away with a solid process for helping students perform at high levels in your own classroom.
