Just sending you an updated flyer with details concerning a special opportunity for KY teachers and administrators at the NSTA Regional Conference in Louisville on October 18th. Sean Elkins, KDE Science Consultant, will provide an update on the development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and implications for KY educators. Brian Hand will lead a session for teachers on constructing arguments from evidence. (Attendees will receive one of Brian Hand's books.) Caroline Kiehle will share strategies with administrators for implementing a strategic plan with respect to the NGSS.
There is no additional charge for this PD session, but we do need for you to specifically register for it. Registration information is available at www.nsta.org/pdfs/2012PDK.pdf.
Hope to see you there!
