WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Join other Maine educators as we learn more about the Framework for K-12 Science Education Vision. Anita Bernhardt, Science and Technology  Specialist for the Maine Department of Education, will offer two sessions that  build on the conversations from the summer Framework strand that was held  in July and August. It is not necessary to have attended the summer  workshops to register for this program. The September session will focus on  the Crosscutting Concepts and the October session will address integration  of the three dimensions.  The sessions will model components of the  Framework and will help you to prepare to implement new standards.
