OpenSciEd Middle School PL Options

Good Day!

Attached are two flyers for OpenSciEd MIDDLE SCHOOL Professional Learning for next school year. We know that a lot of schools are checking out the options still and are excited to support schools and teachers in learning more about OpenSciEd.

First is a full description of all the OpenSciEd Middle School professional learning MMSLN is offering in 2022-2023 that aligns with the high-quality professional learning offered by OpenSciEd.

We are also announcing our OpenSciEd Leadership Academy and Lesson Study partnership with the K-12 Alliance in California. They will offer these forms of PL for OpenSciEd!

In our collaboration with the K-12 Alliance we will be supporting two different times for the Middle School PLC Network so check out this flyer too.

If you have schools that are interested in OpenSciEd professional learning please send them to us so we can make sure they have high quality experiences.

A few things we will discuss are a continuation of Framing a Vision for Science Education in Our State and the Implications of Taking Stock of Science for Michigan.

The Elementary Science Advocacy+ groups are planning to share their work too. The accomplishments of each of the three teams is impressive! The Michigan Learning Chanel also said we’ll have a peek at the first draft of our campaign commercial and other ways they plan to support our efforts.

It will be a great meeting, but even better if you’re there too! Add your name to the registration list and we’ll make sure to save a Zoom box for you!

Partners have the expertise to support the adoption and implementation of high-quality instructional materials (HQIM).

PL organizations must pass three gateways to qualify to be profiled in the PLPG. Specifically, PL services must demonstrate expertise in and explicit connection to HQIM (Gateway 1), quality design and approach (Gateway 2), and a clear process for measuring results and using data to drive improvement (Gateway 3). Learn more at the PL Partner Guide online.

MI Sci PLN Dialogue Session – Taking Stock Summit

MI Sci PLN would like you to join us for the Taking Stock Summit. This will be a point of discussion in one of our dialogue sessions at the May 20th meeting.

We discussed the prior sessions of this summit in previous MI Sci PLN meetings, and they have been excellent! Even if you haven’t attended the earlier sessions, you will still find it valuable to attend. If you are unable to make it, we will do our best to catch you up in our MI Sci PLN meeting.

The Board on Science Education held a virtual summit October 14-15, 2021, and December 8, 2021, that was designed to take stock of the implementation of state science standards, considering implementation across all states and territories to identify successes, challenges, and identify areas where additional work is needed.

This two-day convening will build from this and other activities to:

  1. Identify the conditions for implementation that will support a more equitable and coherent system of science education.
  2. Develop a road map for implementation efforts looking forward that supports research, policymaking, and shifts in practice.

Please join us virtually on April 26 and 27, 2022, as we continue these important conversations and work collaboratively to determine the current state of implementation and how we can encourage positive development in this area moving forward.

More information about this event, including the event agenda, can be found here.

Please note that the National Academies are unable to reimburse costs incurred while traveling to and from this event. We encourage in-person attendance for those who are able to, but are also offering a virtual experience for individuals who are unable to travel to attend this event.
