Learn more about Kentucky’s new science standards and assessment system at the 2017 Kentucky Science Teachers Association (KSTA) conference, scheduled for November 9-11 at the Lexington Convention Center and Hyatt Regency Hotel.
This year’s program includes presentations by Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt and the science education consultants from the Kentucky Department of Education. Tom Tretter from University of Louisville’s College of Education will share strategies and resources for helping students attain success.
After receiving rave reviews for last year’s workshop, the Partnership Initiative for Math and Science Education Reform (PIMSER) at Eastern Kentucky University will present a full-day session for administrators that will equip them to help their science faculty in all levels, K-12. PIMSER also is offering a full day of training for teachers on a crucial component of the new assessment system known as classroom embedded assessment.
Throughout the conference, presentations will provide essential understanding and experiences with through-course tasks, summative science assessment, implementation strategies for 3-D science instruction and a variety of other topics.
