Contemporary science education has shifted away from student memorization and repetition of facts and towards the thoughtful sense-making of observable phenomena that reflect the 3-dimensions of science. To match the ideals of this shift, we must also engage in a more thoughtful dialog with our students to support them as they move towards proficiency in meeting the NYS Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS). The Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) released from NYSED for grades 3 - 8 can guide us to provide ALL students with meaningful feedback and encourage students to reflect on their progress towards meeting science goals. This webinar will provide the opportunity to unpack the PLDs as well as provide useful feedback templates to use in your classroom.
