Session Descriptions

Each session focuses on an aspect of implementing the South Carolina College and Career Ready Science Standards

Modeling effective use of Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs) across a unit
Intentionally embedding the CCCs in a way that is meaningful for students can be a challenge. In this session we will model how to do this effectively using an activity on the spread of infectious disease. CCCs can come alive as your students analyze data, identify patterns, and explore cause and effect relationships. 

Is literacy holding back your science classroom? 
Learn how to improve student literacy skills while forwarding your science content using embedded strategies, not separate ones. We will model the phenomenon of global water movement and construct an explanation of the water cycle through this hands-on activity. 

What do the Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) look like in a classroom? 
The SEPs may at first appear to be the easiest dimension of the standards to implement - just have kids do science, right? But what separates a fun lab from meaningful science practice? In this session we will investigate chemical energy by designing a wet-cell battery.


Let us bring Lab-Aids to you!
