The FOSS Project at the Lawrence Hall of Science, in cooperation with Delta Education invites you and your science leadership team to join FOSS developers and other CA educators at a 2-day Institute on supporting your FOSS Implementation at the elementary grades. Each district is invited to send a FOSS leadership team (3–4 people) of administrators, specialists, coaches, and lead teachers—the educators responsible for coordinating the science implementation now and into the future. This institute is for districts who have or will be adopting FOSS Next Generation.

The Institute will focus on the FOSS CA Planning Guides and CA Teacher Resources—tools to enhance three-dimensional teaching and learning in your district.

Your team will:
• Explore FOSS Next Generation instructional segments investigating phenomena
• Use the new grade-level California FOSS Planning Guides that support teachers in understanding the relationship between the components of the program
• Learn about strategies to help teachers engage students in productive sense-making discussions about core ideas using science practices and crosscutting concepts
• Practice with the new three-dimensional assessment items

  $8/day for parking. Registration is limited to 40 participants.
