Using Essential Questions to Unpack the Science Standards: Grades 6-8

Essential questions frame a unit of study as a problem waiting to be solved. Join us as we discover how essential questions can effectively guide your instructional planning. During this session, we will unpack the 2018 MS College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Science and identify instructional activities that purposefully answer these essential questions designed to actively engage your students in thinking about their own learning. Participants will leave with a personalized roadmap to use on your instructional journey in the science classroom.
