The registration window for the Argument-Driven Engineering and Argument-Driven Mathematics workshops by the UT STEM Center has been extended to Wednesday, April 4, 2018, in order to allow more teachers to register for these previously exclusive, Texas Regional Collaboratives (TRC) workshops.

 

Argument-Driven Engineering

Using Engineering Design Tasks to Teach Science Content and Process TEKS

The 9-hour workshop for teachers focuses on topics including Newton’s Laws, science process skills, engineering design, and the importance of arguing from evidence in both science and engineering. This workshop is designed for teachers in grades 6-12.  Each participate will receive a workshop facilitator kit.

Participants will:

  • Learn how authentic engineering designs tasks can help students learn science content and process TEKS, engineering practices, and ELA skills at the same time while helping them develop positive STEM attitudes.
  • Experience an Argument-Driven Engineering lesson first hand.
  • Discuss ways to provide an educative professional learning experience for teachers, including strategies for promoting meaningful conversations among teachers and strategies for supporting teachers as they learn how to use a new instructional approach.

Details

  • When – April 18-19, 2018

Argument-Driven Mathematics

Investigations that Support the Development of Mathematical Thinking

The 9-hour workshop for teachers focuses on topics including perimeter and area of composite shapes, mathematics process skills, mathematical thinking, and the nature of mathematical arguments. This workshop is designed for teachers in grades 8-12.  Each participate will receive a workshop facilitator kit.

Participants will:

  • Learn how mathematical investigations can enable students to learn mathematics content and process TEKS, ELA TEKS, and how to think mathematically while fostering positive attitudes towards math.
  • Experience an Argument-Driven Mathematics lesson first hand.
  • Discuss ways to provide an educative professional learning experience for teachers, including strategies for promoting meaningful conversations among teachers and strategies for supporting teachers as they learn how to use a new instructional approach.
