Join us on Tuesday, May 12th at 2PM CDT to learn about resources to support educators in staying grounded in the best practices of science teaching and learning while they shift to remote learning during school closures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These resources are aligned to the routines and elements of student-driven storyline instructional models that are central to OpenSciEd, inquiryHub Biology, and NextGen Storylines materials. These resources are a collaborative effort of the University of ColoradoThe Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas, and OpenSciEd and were informed by feedback and guidance from educators.
