1
Welcome to The Science Education Program

Presentation Overview
  • Setting the context
  • Guiding the use
  • Introducing the tools
  • Using the tools in a standards implementation
    process
  • Making personal meaning

3
Setting the Context
  • Connecting the Plenary Session to This Concurrent
    Session on Science Education

4
Setting the Context
  • NCLB All schools show AYP
  • Tools fulfill need from the field
  • Content Standards and Benchmarks
  • Grade Level PI
  • Scope and Sequence
  • Instructional Guide

5
Setting the Context
  • Integration
  • Maintain integrity
  • Natural integration points as driver
  • Backward mapping
  • Handout, modified from WestEd
  • Standards-based
  • Start with end in mind

6

Guidelines for Use
  • Caveat emptor

7
Guidelines for Use
  • Not a Curriculum
  • Written to address needs by some
  • If understood, move on

8
Guidelines for Use
  • IG not comprehensive, not inclusive
  • Tools to start conversation
  • Student Work

9
Key Idea from the Plenary
  • Uses of the Tools
  • Assessment Planning
  • Performance Indicator Progression, Instructional
    Guide, Curriculum Framework
  • Instructional Planning
  • Instructional Guide, Curriculum Framework
  • Curriculum Planning
  • Instructional Guide, Scope and Sequence,
    Curriculum Framework

Aina
  • Two parts
  • Sustaining Food Supply
  • Conservation of Resources
  • Where are GLPIs Found?
  • Where Not Found?

13
Grade Level/Course Performance Indicators
  • K-8 is listed by GLPI
  • High School by Courses
  • Middle School Course of Study
  • 6th Grade Physical Sciences Focus
  • 7th Grade Biological Sciences Focus
  • 8th Grade Earth Systems/Space/EE

14
Safety Considerations, Gr. 6
  • Conduct activities for which
  • You understand the content and pedagogy
  • You have appropriate facilities
  • There are safety equipment and personal safety
    equipment.

15
K-12 Scope and Sequence
  • Multiple Pathways
  • Idea 1/FOSS and AAAS Project 2061
  • Idea 2/STC and AAAS Project 2061

16
K-12 Scope and Sequence
  • Multiple Pathways, continued
  • Idea 3/NCEE and AAAS Project 2061
  • Three important ideas per discipline

17
K-12 Scope and Sequence
  • Domain I cuts across all science disciplines
  • Critical Thinking and Inquiry
  • Scientific Inquiry
  • Safety
  • Unifying Themes
  • Problem Solving/Environmental Issues

18
Conduct the Assessment
  • Small group work
  • Examine Grade 3 student work for evidence of
    performance indicators
  • Write Commentary

19
How Good is Good Enough?
  • Continue in small groups
  • Write performance criteria for clusters of
    performance indicators.
  • Describe the task which generated the student
    work.

21
How Good is Good Enough?
  • Develop 4 point Rubric for the Task
  • 4 Exceeds standard
  • 3 Meets standard
  • 2 Not Met Emerging
  • 1 Not Met Little or no evidence

22
Feedback and Feedforward
  • Suggest ways for student to improve on work
  • Suggest ways for teacher to modify instruction

Hawaii Assessment Program
  • PASS (Partnership for the Assessment of Science
    Standards) WestEd
  • HCPS-s 5, 7, 11
  • NAEP 2004, 2008

28
Aligning Programs to HCPS
  • Example NASA Curriculum Support Materials

29
K-8 Science Reform Programs
  • Benefits hands-on vs. Textbook-driven
  • NSF accepted data on program effectiveness
  • More closely aligned to HCPS and NAEP
  • STC and STC/MS
  • FOSS
  • (Insights)
