Archive: OpenSciEd, Freely Available Science Instruction Materials that Support Equitable Science Instruction for All Students, January 30, 2020

Web Seminar Archive Digital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

OpenSciEd logoOpenSciEd is an initiative that brings together science leaders from ten states, expert curriculum developers, national science education leaders and classroom teachers to develop and test a complete set of robust, research-based, freely available K-12 science instructional materials and associated professional learning resources.  

In this session we will explore how OpenSciEd’s structure and development process ensures that the materials make equitable instructional practices central to the design of the classroom and professional learning materials.  By design, these materials build student agency by relating to their interests, identities, and experiences.

Presenters: Jim Ryan, Sarah Delaney

Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "I had visited the OpenSciEd website before, but I came to a better understanding of how the program is designed to be implemented by participating in the web seminar."
  • "I was looking for the reliable resource for science-related materials for the inspiration. Thanks, your links are very helpful and I will start using them."
  • "I really appreciated the opportunity to hear about this tremendous opportunity in a "casual" setting which sets me up nicely to further explore the OpenSciEd materials."
  • "I learned the importance of engaging the students through hands-on activities. I believe growing up in public school science was a subject that was pushed to the back of the bus. I am excited to see these changes occurring in public schools."
  • "I had already discovered your units, but I learned the plan for rolling all the units out and what the units will be titled."

A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' My Profile page in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.
