This workshop has been designed to give K-8 teachers who teach science a deeper understanding of the content in the area of Waves. Participants will explore scientific vocabulary associated with each standard and learn ways to introduce these terms to their students using a variety of resources including technology. The instructor will model effective ways to teach science vocabulary while the participants learn or re-learn the content in these areas. Participants will walk away with a deeper understanding of the science content and critical thinking skills associated with the new 2016 MA STE standards. After completing this workshop, teachers should feel confident about their understanding of the content and better equipped to teach these standards to students.
