On September 24, 2018, ESU 11 hosted a Professional Learning Community meeting for kindergarten and first grade teachers. PLCs are an ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively to achieve better results for the students they serve. During this session, the group reviewed the newly adopted College and Career Ready Science standards and 3-Dimensional Teaching. Kate and Jody helped teachers identify where the Nebraska CCR Science standards are taught in each school’s current science textbooks. During this procedure, teachers held professional discussions and identified gaps in their current science curriculum. Teachers were then provided with resources that they can use to address these gaps. Then, Gifted Education Coordinator, Janelle Jack, demonstrated a lesson that teachers can use to help incorporate engineering practices into the classroom. The next PLC will be held in January. Between now and the next meeting, teachers are encouraged to integrate one of the lessons/resources that was shared in their classroom during a science lesson.
