The focus of this year’s retreat is to explore science and literacy --
reading and writing to support science learning --
We strive to --
- Provide professional development to support high quality instruction, reflective practice, and professional growth;
- Use the Common Core Standards for Literacy in Science as a way to improve, not only students' reading and writing skills, but competence in scientific inquiry and the development of conceptual understanding;
- Identify, develop and document connections between science instructional materials and effective literacy strategies to be communicated through the Science Navigation Guides;
- Develop professional collaborations and relationships to strengthen our work.
