WestEd Early Science Supplementary Program Opportunity
Attention all first-grade teachers!
Are you looking for ways to bring science back into your classroom this school year? Check out this spring 2021 opportunity to test out a new supplemental science program developed by Twin Cities Public Television (TPT). The science program consists of a series of NGSS-aligned digital games, experimental activities, eBooks, digital science notebooks, and educational TV show episodes all packaged together, by topic, into cohesive units called Playlists. These trans-media digital activities can be used whether teachers are meeting with students in-person, through distance learning, or using a hybrid model. Your class can be part of a study that examines how this particular trans-media tool integrates science and literacy to ignite children's natural curiosity and broaden their understanding of how the world works. This is a very unique opportunity to try out these innovative early science educational materials aimed at closing the achievement gap for low income and minority students.
