How we provide curriculum-aligned PL
OEI offers immersive Curriculum Based Professional Development workshops for teachers and leaders designed to challenge and support equitable science instruction through engaging in student hat, analysis of classroom artifacts, and reflection. Each day centers on a focal problem of practice with most time in grade level unit specific breakout rooms.
Our School Support Specialists are experienced teachers and leaders who develop and nurture relationships with schools and teachers and work with the school leaders (teacher, building, and district) to determine the support model for each school. Their work involves school visits, the development of tools, and long-term planning.
We offer Teacher Learning Network meetings and Leader Learning Network meetings which allow educators to come together and support each other as they address challenges of implementation. Additionally, we share resources and support ongoing collaboration through google groups and resources shared on our website.
We work closely with schools as they consider how OpenSciEd supports their equity vision and help them develop a sustainable implementation plan including identifying teacher, building, and district champions. We meet with the schools to help prepare for the kick off including preparing participants to attend the Launch PD sessions.
