“We are committed to forming a community of practice where we learn from and with each other in order to strengthen science and literacy achievement and understanding by diverse middle school students.”

“I have loved this experience – it makes me much stronger as a teacher, at integrating big ideas and scientific contexts across disciplines and at differentiating instruction.”

“I love this PD…it was life changing.”

“My students improved their ability to read informational text, make a claim, and support it with evidence and reasoning. They saw that the MAP test items were very similar to what we were doing in class and were more confident in their abilities to tackle those types of questions. And since our topic was something they could relate to they were all very interested in learning about it.”
