Thank you Lauren… France that’s cool
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)

By understanding how scientists and engineers use models in their work, we as educators can inform our planning in the classroom.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
35:04
NGSS wants students to learn science by doing science - of course at the grade appropriate sophistication.

Performance Expectation (PE): what students are expected to do by the end of instruction; synonymous with standard

Evidence Statement (ES): Describe what teachers or assessors would observe (not infer) from successful student performance of each performance expectation (PE). The evidence statements can serve as supporting materials for the design of curriculum and assessments

You can either think about the PE on the screen, or a different PE that you have taught with models.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
40:58
Make sure to type in your questions for Jerome to the Q&A - we’ll answer as many as we can at the end of the webinar.
Elizabeth

in 6th grade, we focus on the Ecosystem and have to create a food chain and food web. this is the easiest model I can think of for identifying components, relationships, and connections.
Kaitlin
41:15
Are students typically expected to draw a model? Or use a different medium?

Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
41:58
@Kaitlin - that would be an excellent question for the Q&A, could you submit it there?
Kaitlin
42:06
Certainly
Adriana
42:50
I'm wondering what is the difference between relationships and connections a bit more.
Beverly
43:28
Adriana send thought into Q & A
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
43:34
@Adriana - that's another great question for the Q&A! If Jerome doesn't get to that question, however, I am doing a webinar later today at 3:30 that will touch on that (shameless plug for my webinar :))
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
43:37
@Ariana - we talk about that same thing… a lot! Could you submit that as a question in the Q&A? It would be best talked about rather than typed.
Cheryl
43:47
I present my 8th grade students with a model in which they are unable to see the interior and ask them to use observations and build a "matching" model that behaves in everyway they are able to observe. It always blows their mind when the activity ends and all groups have presented their models and critiqued them and then they learn that I am not going to show them what the original actually looks like. After all, scientists can't always "check" their work either; the whole point of creating models of unknown areas like outer space.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
44:50
Thanks for sharing! These are all wonderful ideas for using models in the classroom!
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
45:40
In your first “Now What” box on the organizer, jot down some key actions you want to take based on what Jerome described and then set a date by which you commit to getting it done.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
50:39
This type of scaffolded model is both grade-level accessible but also authentic - it represents fairly well the type of model a scientist would use. Striking that balance is important to achieve the NGSS.
Carol
50:40
Great visual as I work with high schoolers with a low reading level
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
52:23
@Carol - Modeling is a great way to help students to access content in many different ways!

If you would like to download and write on the Graphic Organizer, it is available here: http://msichicago.org/IQST/resources.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
55:38
Feel free to reflect on the Graphic Organizer (that Mark just shared) and/or in the chat!
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
55:41
@Cheryl That last point you made is critical as students experience science - “nature doesn’t provide a back-of-the-book answer key” instead our models need to generate predictions that we can measure and gauge how well it matches nature.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
57:53
As you ponder models, if you have questions that you’d like to ask Jerome, add them via Q&A feature.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
58:43
Learning Progression (LP): Descriptions of the successively more sophisticated ways of thinking about a topic that can follow one another as children learn about and investigate a topic over a broad span of time (captured in the Framework by use of grade bands).
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
59:02
Science and Engineering Practice (SEP): What students DO to make sense of phenomena. They are both a set of skills and a set of knowledge to be internalized. The SEPs reflect the major practices that scientists and engineers use.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
01:01:55
There’s way more ideas about modeling than we’ll have time to talk about… that’s where the “Now What” next steps come in. Make a plan to learn more or start to apply. As you tackle your “Now What”, feel free to email us if you need support.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:02:44
Yes! We love getting questions, so please email us with questions at any time - iqst@msichicago.org

How do we facilitate groups with social distancing?
rhonda
01:04:15
Love that idea AND we need to think out of the box for covid safe collaborative activities.
Laurel
01:05:09
Some of the teleconferencing software suites offer the option to split students into “discussion rooms”. You could also use padlet, Flipgrid, Google suite, or something else like this to allow students to work in groups, even from home or across the room!
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:05:14
@Rhonda - Creativity is key! Does anyone in the chat have ideas for supporting students in collaborative environments (from @Carol's question)?
Allison
01:05:46
I have been looking into Google Groups.

Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
01:06:19
@Carol, here’s a short post on that topic https://www.gse.harvard.edu/news/uk/20/05/keeping-conversation-going-across-distance to dig into ideas for online discussions (since student talk is critical in NGSS)
Deirdre
01:06:21
Those of us who have taught using google classroom, zoom and microsoft teams, etc., can continue to use those chat functions for groups if our kids are lucky enough to be 1:1 with devices in the classroom
Karen
01:06:32
There's a Google app called Jamboard that will allow you to do this online
Carol
01:06:35
Zoom groups requires a costly upgrade. But Google suite is a possibility
Carol
01:10:38
Thank you so much Karen
Lauren Slanker (MSI)

Thanks for sharing your tools, all! Feel free to reflect on your Graphic Organizer and/or in the chat during this last reflection time. We'll end with a Q&A, so submit any last questions you have for Jerome!
