ClEvR Lab Reports using Adobe Spark Video
Labs are extremely important in any science class. Students should be able to share what they have learned in that experiment, but that doesn't mean that students must always write a full formal lab report. In this session, you will learn a creative way for students to demonstrate what they have learned from the lab by creating a quick and easy video featuring a ClEvR argument (Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning). Students will be practicing their Common Core speaking and listening skills, the four Cs, and communicating their learning in modalities other than just writing.

Developing Better Scientists by Asking Better Questions
All scientific discoveries, accidental or not, start out from simple questions about the observable universe. These questions seek answers to explain behavior or phenomena and allow students to think deeply about designing their own solutions and experiments to explain such phenomena. See how strategies like QFT and technologies like Verso or Google Sheets can promote the kind of inquiry we want our science students doing while addressing Science and Engineering Practices in NGSS.

Interactive Notebooks for Meta-cognition & Growth
Sometimes the best tool for the job is old fashioned pen and paper. Learn how to incorporate interactive notebooks into your courses regardless of whether it is a high tech or low tech classroom. Learn how interactive notebooks can help kids deepen their learning and the conversations they have about their projects and research. These notebooks promote a growth mindset and improve speaking and written communication as well as help with claims and evidence over time. We will also discuss management/grading -- there is no need for the teacher to ever take home stacks of notebooks over the weekend.
