On October 25, 2018, ESU 11 hosted a Professional Learning Community meeting for 6-12 grade science 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 then helped the teachers identify where the Nebraska CCR Science standards are taught in the school’s current science textbooks. During this procedure, teachers held professional discussions and identified gaps in the curriculum. Kate and Jody also provided resources to address those gaps, and integrate engineering components. The next PLC will be held in January. Between now and the next meeting, teachers are encouraged to integrate one of the lessons that was developed in their classroom during a science lesson.
