Teacher Sessions

Classroom Modeling:
Observing Science Exemplars in the Standards-Based Classroom

The Classroom Modeling session demonstrates the implementation of inquiry-based tasks, assessment and the communication process across all levels. This professional opportunity was developed in response to numerous requests for Exemplars trainers to exercise Exemplars tasks in participants' classrooms.

Components include:

  • A working portfolio lesson that addresses the request of the classroom teacher(s). The lesson may focus on a particular content area, strategy or science investigation.
  • Questioning students about their thinking in order to generate connections and to communicate student reasoning both verbally and in writing
  • Demonstrating differentiated instruction
  • Guiding students towards self-assessment
  • Building student confidence and interest in inquiry-based investigations and communication
  • Utilizing Exemplars investigations for introducing scientific content, scientific language and connections and to encourage scientific discussion
