Chemistry Experiences and Experiments for Learning | Follow-up Day 1

Content Deepening Courses

Schedule of follow-up days:

Day 1:  September 8 at Stanford (exact location TBA)

Day 2:  November 3 at Stanford (exact location TBA)



Teachers will work with a set of chemistry experiences and experiments that can foster student learning and expand high-leverage, core teaching practices in chemistry. These chemistry experiences have been designed and vetted by the Stanford University Department of Chemistry in conjunction with high school chemistry teachers and science educators. The experiences will provide opportunities for participants to make strong connections with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards. Chemistry content and teaching practices will be tightly integrated around key chemical phenomena and concepts.

Participants will develop a plan for their own classrooms that use these experiences, experiments, and core teaching practices to address the science learning goals in the NGSS and Common Core State Standards.  In the summer, teachers will design an instructional sequence to implement early in the school year in their classroom.  During school year follow-ups, teachers will analyze artifacts from their implementation in order to reflect on student learning and inform future instruction.  In addition to discussing past implementation, follow-up days will address new topics such as assessment and equitable teaching strategies and will provide structured opportunities for collaboration and planning.
