Workshops: Preparing to Implement the New Science Standards: St. Cloud

December 13, 2019, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The 2019 K-12 Minnesota Science Standards envision new approaches to teaching and learning science. Learn about the pedagogy associated with the new standards, the timeline for implementation, and ways to prepare to teach the standards. This workshop is targeted for K-12 teachers of science and other science educators. John Olson, Science Specialist at the Minnesota Department of Education, will facilitate this workshop.

The tentative agenda is:

  • Foundational ideas that informed the new standards
  • Example of instruction
  • Development and organization of MN standards
  • Analyzing a benchmark and selecting phenomena for instruction
  • Implementation timeline for the new standards
  • Resources

There is no fee for the workshop, however no food is provided. So bring beverages, snacks and lunch if needed. Bring a laptop or tablet to access the slides, standards, and resources.

There is a facility limit to the number of people that can attend, so registration is first come/first served. Registration closes three business days before the event or when full. Persons registered by one week in advance will receive directions to the facility and the agenda.  More Information and Registration Form, For questions contact John.C.Olson@state.mn.us 651-582-8673
