11 Within Moodle there is an area for teachers to communicate, ask questions, offer suggestions and to exchange ideas. 11

12 Teachers will be able to showcase their best lessons or activities that support any of the four Essential Academic Learning Requirements. This portion of the site will be dynamic and change throughout the year. 12

13 Inside the teacher tool box there will be pacing guides, model syllabi, learning progression information and other strategies that will assist teachers to develop their lessons. This portion of the Moodle will also continue to be updated throughout the year. 13

14 Understanding the Systems, Inquiry and Application EALRs are an identified area of need for all teachers in the State. Throughout the year these three areas will be addressed in the Moodle and will be built out with instructional and pedagogical supports. 14

15 OSPI will continue to host monthly supportive webinars to focus on end-of-course exam updates in biology, science standards, best practices in instruction, Next Generation Science Standards, and STEM education. Information about the webinars will be posted at: http :// Standards.aspxhttp :// Standards.aspx.
