Saturday Science Speaker

Mark Windschitl
Ambitious Science Teaching

How Can I Get More of My Students to “Talk Science?”: Using Anchoring Phenomena to Sustain Conversations and Engagement in Your Classroom

In this presentation, Dr. Windschitl will share how to support young learners in making sense of complex science ideas by implementing a few key principles of equitable and productive talk. He will also provide examples of dynamic natural phenomena that can anchor this student sense-making, and show how scientific modeling can encourage several different types of discussion in the classroom. Connections will be made to NGSS and 3-dimensional learning. 

Conference Schedule

"I can honestly say that in most cases the workshops we had here at NATS were better or equal to any that I went to at NSTA. ... The truth is that NATS is a connection to the professional world of science teaching."

- Ed Brogie, Past President, 1986-1987
