Webinar: Supporting Shifts in Science Teaching and Learning in Five Dimensions

February 24th, 2PM CST

Join us to learn about a process for designing and implementing a 5-dimensional context-aligned teacher observation tool. Douglas Watkins, Denver Public Schools High-School Science Curriculum Specialist, will share his experiences in developing, contextualizing to local infrastructure, and applying an observation and evaluation tool that promotes instructional coherence and a shift toward the vision described in A Framework for k-12 Science Education across the district. Douglas will share his successes and challenges and provide time for participants to ask questions.
