Instructor: Dr. Lisa Nyberg, California State University, Fresno
Location: Portland Community College, Sylvania Campus
Learning about science begins with investigations of engaging questions: How does that work? How can I solve that problem? Why do things sink or float? How does the toy make sound? See how engaging questions and meaningful investigations help students build understanding of science concepts while giving purpose to literacy skill development.
How can you make learning accessible through the use of carefully selected questioning strategies that promote analytical thinking? Experience hands-on investigating strategies integrated in a dynamic model to engage powerful instructional practices focused on Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards!
