Going 3D with GRC Science Investigations with Brett Moulding for 6-8 & High School

March 11, 2022

This unique learning event includes a 2-day Professional Development opportunity, followed up with an online small group Professional Learning Community (PLC), facilitated by Brett Moulding.

Day 1 will be on Friday evening through a virtual experience and the following day will be in person at SRP from 8-3 pm. The professional development will be delivered by Essential Teaching and Learning, sponsored by SRP and ADE with breakfast and lunch included. This opportunity is designed to engage 6-12th grade educators in professional learning over the course of two days. Follow up with 2-hour afterschool lesson study sessions.

The main facilitator for this opportunity is Brett Moulding, the Director of the Partnership for Effective Science Teaching and Learning. All participants will receive hands-on materials for the two-day professional learning experience, and a copy of Brett Moulding’s recently published book, Engaging Students in Science Investigations Using GRC. All materials will be shared on Saturday at the in-person training.

This professional development will model instruction and provide details and insights from A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts along with Arizona’s 2018 Science Standards

The two-day sessions for 6th-12th grade educators will convene on the following days:

  • Virtually: Friday, March 11, 2022 from 4:30-7:30 PM
  • In-person: Saturday, March 12, 2022 from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM
