Grades K-6

A partnership between Seattle Public Schools, University of Washington College of Education researchers and the Teaching Channel is changing how science teaching is done, and ultimately, better prepare the next generation of scientists and scientifically-knowledgeable citizens. 450 teachers, 30 teacher leaders, district science specialists, university researchers, and professional learning experts developed a blended learning model to support teacher and student learning with "launch units" for K-2 (Puddles unit) and grades 3-5 (Maglev train unit), featuring the revision of models and the development of evidence-based explanations. Teacher leaders and teachers shared videos from their classrooms, closely examined student work, raised and addressed questions about equitable learning opportunities, and contributed to the improvement of the units and the professional learning model.
