2 General information Language Arts Florida Standards (LAFS) and Mathematics Florida Standards (MAFS) aligned in District Pacing Guides Achievement Level Descriptors for FCAT 2.0 Science and Biology EOC Next Generation Science Standards – Final version released (adoption process has not started yet) NAEP 2012 – students have problems with providing evidence and reasoning for claims Insights: Benchmark instruction with fidelity and rigor + Students exposed to application of concepts (inquiry, assessments) = Success Department of Mathematics and Science

3 Session Outcomes Participants will be able to: – Identify how the Florida Standards are correlated to the Middle School Science Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) and can be used to increase rigor of instruction. – Incorporate M-DCPS earth science instructional resources to increase the depth of science teaching and learning. – Plan for rigorous instruction using 5E Model Department of Mathematics and Science

4 AGENDA AM Welcome and Opening Moves Thermal Energy Transfer Break Discovery Education: Board Builder Weather and Climate PM Atmosphere and Spheres of the Earth Florida Standards Microlabs Development of 5E Lesson Plan One Word Summary Department of Mathematics and Science

5 Norms Be present Share wisdom Trust the process Keep an open mind Refrain from judging Try something new, then reflect Department of Mathematics and Science

6 Name Tents Write your name School Grade Level Department of Mathematics and Science

7 Introduce the FL Standards- “What should FL Standards look like in a Science Classroom?” 7 Department of Mathematics and Science

8 Today’s Benchmarks SC.6.E.7.1: Differentiate among radiation, conduction, and convection, the three mechanisms by which heat is transferred through Earth's system. SC.6.E.7.2: Investigate and apply how the cycling of water between the atmosphere and hydrosphere has an effect on weather patterns and climate. SC.6.E.7.3: Describe how global patterns such as the jet stream and ocean currents influence local weather in measurable terms such as temperature, air pressure, wind direction and speed, and humidity and precipitation. SC.6.E.7.4: Differentiate and show interactions among the geosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. SC.6.E.7.5: Explain how energy provided by the sun influences global patterns of atmospheric movement and the temperature differences between air, water, and land. SC.6.E.7.6: Differentiate between weather and climate. Department of Mathematics and Science

9 Curriculum and Instruction Pacing Guide Updates

10 Links by standard

11 Heat Transfer in Earth’s Systems 11 Department of Mathematics and Science

12 Conclusion Writing: Claim-Evidence-Reasoning Students should support their own written claims with appropriate justification. Department of Mathematics and Science How is heat transferred through the Earth’s surface and the atmosphere?

15 Weather and Climate 15 Department of Mathematics and Science ABC’s of teaching - Activity Before Content Explore content through essential lab (Heating Earth’s Surface) Then use text (“Current Patterns” from Discovery Education) to clarify understanding from the lab.

16 Weather and Climate Implementing MAFS while using NGSSS 16 Department of Mathematics and Science MAFS.6.SP.2.4: Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. Use your group’s data to generate a graph of your results.

18 A FTERNOON S CHEDULE Atmosphere and Spheres of the Earth Florida Standards Microlabs Development of 5E Lesson Plan One Word Summary Department of Mathematics and Science

19 Atmosphere and Spheres of the Earth SC.6.E.7.4 Differentiate and show interactions among the geosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. LAFS.68.RST.3.9:Compare and contrast the information gained from experiments, simulations, video, or multimedia sources with that gained from reading a text on the same topic. Engage – How wolves change riversHow wolves change rivers Explore 19 Department of Mathematics and Science

20 Atmosphere and Spheres of the Earth SC.6.E.7.4 Differentiate and show interactions among the geosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. LAFS.68.RST.3.9:Compare and contrast the information gained from experiments, simulations, video, or multimedia sources with that gained from reading a text on the same topic. The Video and Essential lab take a different approach to the same topics (SC.6.E.7.4) Develop a diagram to Compare and contrast the information gained from these 2 sources (The LAFS). 20 Department of Mathematics and Science

21 Microlabs 21 Rounds using FL standards document: (1 minute per question, per person) What are Florida Standards and how are they infused into science instruction? What types of science activities lend themselves to Florida standards infusion? What kind of student product(s) is evidence of Florida standards through science? Florida Standards Review: 1. From the discussion in your micro-labs, brainstorm what activities you see in science classrooms that fulfill the specific Florida standards posted. -Write these activities on yellow sticky notes in your group (one per note) 2. Now brainstorm activities that are not currently seen in science classrooms but that can be done to fulfill the specific Florida standards posted. -Write these activities on pink sticky notes in your group (one per note) Whole Group Reflection: “Which FL standards are addressed more in science instruction than others?” Department of Mathematics and Science

22 Technology Integration Department of Mathematics and Science

23 Assignment 5E lesson plan turned in to edmodo utilizing content and strategies presented in today’s session. Teachers may work in groups of 3-4. Each teacher must submit an individual assignment. Department of Mathematics and Science

24 Session Outcomes Participants will be able to: – Identify how the Florida Standards are correlated to the Middle School Science Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) and can be used to increase rigor of instruction. – Incorporate M-DCPS earth science instructional resources to increase the depth of science teaching and learning. – Plan for rigorous instruction using 5E Model Department of Mathematics and Science

25 One Word Summary Provide one word as feedback to describe what good science with FL standards should look like. Write on an index card and post up before you leave. Department of Mathematics and Science
