Like a Scientist (Educator Workshops), Fleet Science Center, Saturday, 01. December 2018

Through what lens do scientists view the world? How do scientists ask investigative questions? How can scientists engage in argument that leads to a better understanding of the world? Most importantly, how can we take what scientists do every day and emulate those behaviors in our classroom? 
Like a Scientist is intended for the K-8 teacher seeking ways to improve her classroom science instruction. 
Science skills are interdisciplinary. Teachers will discover that pattern recognition is equally important in science as it is in math or that cause and effect relationships are found in science and social studies. Science skills are used in every subject.
Each month, the Fleet hosts a new Like a Scientist program. Please check the dates and themes below before registering. 

Question? Like a Scientist
November 4, 2018, 9 a.m. - Noon
Not all questions are created equally. Some questions lead to insightful investigations while others are better suited for research. In this workshop, educators identify investigable questions through an inquiry investigation and learn ways to turn student questions to be more investigable.
Notebook Like a Scientist
December 1, 2018, 9 a.m. - Noon
Improve student's scientific observation skills while creating a classroom environment that welcomes feedback, critique, and evidence-based reasoning. This workshop includes an arts component and is an opportunity to incorporate more STEAM in the classroom. 
Argue! Like a Scientist
January 12, 2019, 9 a.m. - Noon
Discover strategies to enhance student arguments using claims from evidence, real data and opposing scientific views. Educators find new ways to align lessons to NGSS through science and engineering practices.
