MMSLN is collaborating with Create for STEM at MSU to provide an overview of their elementary OER science instructional resources. We would love to have you join us on November 21 and 22 in OKEMOS!
Multiple Literacies in Project-Based Learning (ML-PBL) curricular resources focus on science teaching and learning and supports building literacy and mathematical capabilities in students to create access to and ownership of science learning for diverse learners. ML-PBL integrates learning goals aligned to the Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS) as well as the Common Core English Language Arts and Mathematics Standards (CCSS) to support student learning. These materials reflect a significant interdisciplinary approach by integrating science, literacy, and mathematics. Our curriculum materials and instructional supports build upon foundational principles about how students learn and design principles of project-based learning.
In this session you will experience the ML-PBL materials. You will learn about the development process, the design of the units, and the results we have obtained in carefully designed efficacy study conducted in Michigan. Finally, you will learn how you can use and access the materials.
The development of ML-PBL was funded through the George Lucas Education Research Foundation. As such, ML-PBL are creative commons, open source not for profit materials. All school districts and teachers can freely use the materials. We will also discuss professional development opportunities.
Please forward to your districts who are looking for elementary materials…
