About this event

Sessions will meet IN PERSON Monday - Friday 8:30-11:30 am and 1:00-3:30 pm. The sessions will provide teachers with full lab experiences, data discussions, and examples of set-up for classroom implementation. Patterns Biology is the culminating course in the 3-year high school Patterns Science sequence. This workshop focuses on three-dimensional (3D) learning through culturally responsive, phenomena-based storylines that intertwine the disciplinary core ideas of biology with the scientific and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts as described in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Participants will experience the Patterns Approach of using inquiry and exploration to teach content to students as well as how to integrate talk structures and classroom discourse into their instructional design including a variety of data discussion methods. Additionally, participants will learn how to include instructional practices that support student scientific writing that advance equitable engagement of students as they grapple with real-world applications in Biology. These applications involve topics such as social justice themes, implementation of Oregon’s Tribal History/Shared History lessons and more complex mathematical patterns and trends.
