In exchange for your workshop or presentation, practicing educators (serving as the lead presenter) will receive a reduced conference registration rate if your proposal is accepted.
Please join us at our 40th Annual Conference to be held
November 8th - 10th, 2017 in Columbia, SC.
Sessions will focus on improving the educator’s, and in turn the student’s, knowledge and understanding of reading, writing, speaking, and listening to deepen one's understanding of scientific content. Disciplinary practices ensure that students have opportunities to read, write, think, and talk as scientists.
SEPs & STEM/STEAM:
Sessions will focus on best practices and instructional approaches that support the Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) and crosscutting concepts in the SC Academic Standards and Performance Indicators for Science as well as STEM/STEAM programs.
Resources and Opportunities:
Sessions will focus on opportunities and resources available to educators and students to connect concepts being learned in the classroom to real-world applications or business and industry connections. These sessions focus on connecting science practices to the Profile of a SC Graduate.
Assessment that Informs Instruction:
Sessions will focus on leveraging the data received from formative and summative assessment to inform instruction and differentiate strategies to meet the needs of all learners.
Project and Problem-Based Learning:
Sessions will focus on engaging students through contextual, authentic scenarios that challenge students to research and design solutions to complex problems while deepening their content knowledge.
