Montana Science Standards Unit Development Summer Institute
As Montana schools transition to new Montana Science Standards teachers across the state are working hard to transform their lessons, units, and instruction to match the increased rigor and three-dimensional nature of the standards. Participants will engage in a brief overview of the three-dimensions established by A Framework for K - 12 Science Education (the Framework), explore key structures and strategies to include in their instruction to support the three-dimensions, and will have time and space to build a unit aligned to all three-dimensions of the Framework. Teachers will leave this workshop prepared to continue this unit development process for additional high-quality units that are strongly aligned to the New Montana Science standards.
