Upcoming Webinar on Addressing the Urgent Need for Quality K-12 Science Materials: What’s Next for High School Reviews

Posted Feb. 8, 2022

Register for an upcoming free webinar on Feb 15, 2022 at 7:00 PM ET. This webinar features Shannon Wachowski, NSELA Communications and Marketing Committee Chair as well as Tricia Shelton from NSTA, Sam Shaw from EdReports, and Minna Turrell a Secondary Science Consultant.

Field research from @EdReports found inequities in the selection and use of quality science curricula and a lack of support for educators to make the instructional shifts necessary. Their upcoming free webinar explores what can be done about this: https://bit.ly/EdRScience

Addressing the Urgent Need for Quality K-12 Science Materials: What’s Next for High School Reviews
Since 2015, EdReports has published more than 900 free reviews of K-12 instructional materials including nearly 70 reviews of K-8 science programs. Most recently, EdReports completed a listening and learning tour to hear directly from the field about what’s needed to conduct rigorous reviews of high school science materials. Findings point toward inequities not only in the selection and use of quality curricula, but also a lack of support for educators to make the instructional shifts necessary.

During this free webinar, you’ll learn more about key highlights from the tour, why high-quality instructional materials matter for students and teachers, next steps for EdReports’ high school science review tools, and opportunities for professional learning. Featured speakers include Tricia Shelton, Chief Learning Officer for NSTA, Minna Turrell, Secondary Science Consultant for St. Clair County RESA, Sam Shaw, Director of Science for EdReports, and Shannon Wachowski, High School Science Specialist for EdReports.

Can’t attend live? Sign up anyway and we’ll email you the recording and related sources after the event.

“Safety Awareness and Pandemic Learning Loss” – As we emerge from the Pandemic ever so slowly, laboratory skills and laboratory safety are two areas of learning loss we cannot forget while focusing on academic goals upon returning to hands-on in school science/STEM lab work.
