PSTA sponsors events throughout the year with the goal of providing professional development and networking opportunities for our members. We also work to share other events happening around the state and country!
Take a walk through FOSS: Pathways. This webinar will take a look at the newest edition of FOSS science curriculum and highlight how it will guide both teachers and students along the path of science understanding meeting the new PA STEELS standards in the most efficient time. Using FOSS Pathways: Water and Climate, teachers will experience a lesson demonstrating phenomena-based three-dimensional science instruction.
Please have a straw and small cup of water available for participation in the webinar.
Presenters: Amy Hamacher

In this session, we will focus on an example AST Unit: The Happy Sad Ball. The webinar will include a narrative of how the unit was developed. The webinar will also unpack how student questioning and evidence gathering from supporting activities empower them to write a gapless explanation. We will go through each step of building the phenomenon to make this process more concrete for teachers.

In this interactive webinar, teachers are encouraged to bring questions and materials they already use to brainstorm supporting phenomena. We will also focus on how to use student questioning and student-led activities to drive the phenomenon. We will also discuss the advantages of using summary tables as a tool to explain the phenomenon as well as the role of a summary table to help an educator build the assessment.
