Session Detail

Pre-AP Science: Developing Inquiry Mindsets in the Science Classroom

Developing inquiry mindsets is a focus of the Pre-AP science classroom. In this workshop, participants examine an effective, collaborative science classroom through the Pre-AP Biology framework, areas of focus, and shared instructional principles. Teachers actively engage in modeling a safe, student-focused science classroom environment in which students develop inquiry skills while accessing critical content. Students will do this through close observation and analysis, higher-order questioning, evidence-based writing, and academic conversation. Participants create a plan for incorporating close observation and analysis, collaborative group structures, and academic conversations into their daily instruction. 

Educators will examine the characteristics of a safe, inquiry-focused science classroom and develop a plan to implement Pre-AP shared principles in their daily classroom practice.
