Join us THURSDAY 2/4 at noon for a rich discussion about gender in biology instruction. Even if you are not a biology focused person – this conversation is critical for expanding our understanding of gender inclusivity in all Science instruction!
Science Bi-Weekly Chat – Sam Long, https://www.genderinclusivebiology.com
Join the MMSLN for this bi-weekly chat.
This week we will meet and learn with Sam Long. Sam is one of the founding members of https://www.genderinclusivebiology.com. He has been a teacher for several years and is focused on gender inclusivity in biology and science teaching.
“Our students will face decisions about health, science, and medicine that we can hardly imagine.
How can we keep student needs and science first, yet still create a safe and affirming space for intellectual curiosity?
Teaching biology creates many opportunities to authentically incorporate student curiosity. The Next-Generation Science Standards (NGSS) expect students to ask questions about natural phenomena and then explain their answers using models. This website offers examples of adapting curriculum to NGSS and gender-inclusive standards, as well as resources for advocating to administration and others.”
