Solving the Fifth Grade Science Puzzle: How to Soar on State Testing

Learn about the keys to move your fifth grade science students from the lower levels of the testing continuum up towards the ‘exceeds’ column. This professional development session is an all-day experience addressing:

This professional learning opportunity actually takes the teachers through a lesson featuring each stage of the 5-E model so they can experience it for themselves, which will allow them to recreate it in their classroom. The session can be customized to fit your curriculum map, so that the instruction will address the content area the teachers will be addressing next. This will allow the teachers to immediately use what they have just learned in the session. Teachers will receive copies of the lesson in which they will participate.

Georgia STEM Essentials K-8 Teacher Professional Learning

Change your STEM culture; allow GYSTC to help you incorporate STEM into your daily lessons. GYSTC will provide The STEM Essentials Workshop that models a practical and hands-on approach to STEM instruction. It is a fast-paced day of STEM focused professional development. Each exploration emphasizes the Georgia Standards of Excellence while also showing how to incorporate both engineering practices and crosscutting concepts into instruction utilizing the 3-D approach.

The STEM Workshop will include a focus on:

STEM Essentials:

Utilizing the 5E approach, these lessons are essential to any science classroom because they are super engaging, affordable and re-usable. More importantly, these investigations rock at making 3-D connections in ways that promote student passion for and understanding of STEM endeavors. Like your students, you will create, design, collaborate, and solve as you engage in relevant, hands-on explorations.

Super STEM Challenges:

STEM challenges take students from identifying a problem—or a design challenge—to creating and developing a solution. Each challenge is centered around the engineering design process as they immerse students in hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration. Teachers will try out multiple challenges many of which will be specific to their grade level and standards. Students absolutely love these challenges and they learn a ton along the way.

Cool Coding and Robotics:

Coding is the art of telling a computer (or robot) exactly what to do. Drag and drop (block) coding is a relatively simple coding language that relies primarily on graphics and visual relationships. It is a great way to introduce students to coding and that can easily be integrated with your subject specific standards. Even if we’re not very techie our kids will need to be.

 

We will bring this workshop to your district on one of the following dates:
