Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education offers a free one-day professional development designed to assist in systematically integrating reading and writing in science.

The PD will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with an hour for lunch.  Currently, we have three locations and times.  The PD is the same at each location.

A brief agenda

1. Three-dimensional learning and Gather-Reason-Communicate Lesson framework.

2. Integrating reading in science lessons beyond just reading the textbook.

3. Integrating evidence-based writing in science lessons to deepen student understanding.
