General Session/Keynote: Teaching Science is Phenomenal
The session presents a vision for three-dimensional science teaching and learning.  Brett will engage participants in science instruction consistent with this vision and present the instructional model of Gather, Reason, and Communicate.  Participants will learn how science phenomena are essential to teaching and learning consistent with the NRC Framework, NGSS, and science standards consistent with the Framework.
Objectives:
  1. Deepen understanding of three-dimensional science teaching and learning;
  2. Develop understanding of the science performance sequence of Gather, Reason, and Communicate;
  3. Develop understanding of using phenomena and analogous phenomena to engage student in science learning.

EdReports.org Science Instructional Materials Review
EdReports science review is a by educator, for educator process that involves educators in the creation of the review criteria and engages them in the review of full year instructional materials. In 2018, EdReports embarked on an inaugural review of six series of grades 6-8 science materials. This session will provide an overview of the tool creation process and components, selection of materials for review, the reviewer recruitment and selection, training, and review processes, an overview of reports resulting from the inaugural review, and an update on and opportunities for upcoming reviews in 2019. The breakout session will focus on a deep dive into the rubric and evidence guides, reviewer processes for consensus and calibration, the reports to discuss findings, and aspects of quality adoption processes.

Objectives...Attendees will:
  • Understand the EdReports by educator, for educator process
  • Understand aspects of quality in terms of instructional materials and adoption processes
  • Interpret the inaugural reports
  • Access the grades 6-8 rubric and evidence guides
  • Receive opportunities for participation in the review process and ways to share with constituents and networks

Breakout: STEM Integration in K-12 Education: Status, Prospects, and an Agenda for Research
This presentation will provide an overview of the national report, STEM Integration in K-12 Education: Status, Prospects, and an Agenda for Research.  The overview will describe the ongoing debate and dialogue in the U.S. about the presence of integrated STEM education in K-12 classrooms, as well as student access to such educational opportunities.  This debate is often characterized between the preference of “STEM for ALL” or specialized STEM schools for students with demonstrated abilities and interest in STEM.  Additionally, the presentation will highlight several recommendations from the national report that are intended to foster ideas and conversations regarding integrated STEM research, outcomes for students, program design and assessment.  Specific examples from two, integrated STEM schools in Memphis, Tennessee will be shared, as well.
