- Support/Guidance for Life Science Educators (Elementary Focus) During Distance Learning
March 30, 2020, 7:00 - 8:00 PM
Hello Minnesota Science Teachers and Educators!
Minnesota Science Teachers Association (MnSTA) has been charged by Mn Education Commissioner Ricker with coming up with non-tech based lessons for science, that are building on the strengths of our families and students. As Minnesota plans for Equitable Distance Learning Plans, we are hoping that we can publish these lesson plans to our website and to our email lists, for all teachers to access and use.
We are planning some "connecting" webinars, run through Google Meet and people can phone in or computer in. Please find a day and time that works best for you. Notice a focus on grade bands for Life Science webinars. All are welcome to each webinar but there may be more of an emphasis on planning around relevant pedagogy for those grade levels and student needs. We have observed various levels of instructional need across grade levels and districts.
Our goals: connect people, come together, provide guidance and support, and make teams for developing lessons for equitable distance learning.

Please consider for our discussion:
1-One thing you need more of/one thing you don't need more of
2-What is most important for you to work on this coming week?
3-Where are you finding opportunity in this challenge?
We'll have people unmute their microphones in groups of 3-5, and talk for a few minutes in their group (fishbowl style) and then switch to the next group.
We hope you can join us in working together for science in Minnesota! Please share with your networks in Minnesota. We are looking forward to virtually meeting you.
