 Credit:  12 PDPs or 1 graduate credit from Cambridge College (for an
 additional cost of $50; must attend all three sessions to receive
 graduate credit)
 During this three-part series, we will explore essential scientific
 concepts in the important context of ocean science through engaging
 investigations. Participants will walk away with knowledge about the
 ocean, its inhabitants and its interaction with humans as well as
 with activities and resources to use in their classrooms! 
 Topic Agenda
 Day 1: Physical Properties of the Ocean
 Day 2: Life in the Ocean
 Day 3: Human and Ocean Interaction
 A Closer Look: Integrating Science and Literacy through Observation 
 Date: Friday, February 22, 2013
 Time: 8:30 a.m.  12:30 p.m.
 Cost: $50 
 For: Educators, grades K  5 (others also welcome)
 Sharpen your understanding of how to facilitate inquiry-based
 activities and design investigations.  Discover ways to help students
 write informational text and develop their observational skills with
 artifacts, live animals and aquarium exhibits. Through integration of
 science skills, participants will:
 Connect ELA Common Core and Science Standards through engaging and
 easy to implement activities
 Experience and understand effective approaches in science teaching in
 a general education classroom
 Understand how simple observations can lead to questions,
 investigation and exploration (Claims, Evidence, Reasoning)
 Engage their students in new ways to explore the world around them
 ELA Common Core Anchor Standards
 Speaking and Listening: flexible communication and collaboration
 Language: conventions, effective use, and vocabulary
 Writing: text types, responding to reading, and research
