This webinar is designed to increase teachers’ confidence in navigating the revised Science and Technology curriculum, including cross-curricular instruction and culturally responsive and relevant pedagogy.
Join us as we explore resources created by Ontario teachers which provide examples of promising practices in elementary science and technology for grades 1-8. Among the free, practical resources, are Long Range Planning models, (a series of learning experiences that include curriculum expectations, learning goals, success criteria, teaching and learning activities, resources and materials, assessment opportunities, and important equity, diversity, and inclusivity considerations to support all learners) and a resource guide for Coding and Computational Thinking.
