Knuckle Down on the New Standards: MS College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Science Grades 6-8

Join other middle school teachers from across the state of Mississippi as we use active learning to get a grip on ways to incorporate all of the core elements of the state’s new science standards. Along with opportunities to explore the new standards, each session in this three-part series will focus on the different themes as outlined in the Grades 6-8 Overview. Network with others as we apply the concepts of structure and function, systems and cycles, and cause and effect. Participants will come away with an understanding of how to build science reasoning from students’ previous learning experiences and tie together concepts learned across the middle school grades.
