Keeping students engaged is a struggle in every classroom. Making sure that we are addressing all the Common Core Standards is another. Now with the New Generation Science Standards, we are feeling even more pressure. This webinar will give you ideas and strategies that teachers implemented through TACIB, a grant funded by the National Science Foundation, in collaboration with Cal State Fullerton and Discovery Cube. Lesson ideas integrate the Culturally Responsive teaching approach with Common Core Standards leading to higher levels of student engagement!
