AAAS WORKSHOPS: USING ATLAS OF SCIENCE LITERACY
(June 17-19, Ashland, Oregon – Southern Oregon University)
Developed by American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Project 2061, the 2-volume ‘Atlas of Science Literacy’ contains 100 strand maps that present conceptual connections among the ideas and skills that all students should learn as they make progress toward science literacy.
The workshops give participants a new perspective on standards-based reform based on understanding the maps, clarifying standards, changing classroom practice, and improving curriculum. Participants will learn more about the ‘Atlas of Science Literacy’ Vol. 1 & 2, and how to put it to use to improve curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
