Lesson Imaging in Mathematics and Science: Mindfully Planning for Inquiry Instruction

Lesson Imaging in Math and Science: Anticipating Student Ideas and Questions for Deeper STEM Learning - ASCDTeaching in the STEM fields has recently shifted focus toward less direct instruction and more toward inquiry and investigative approaches. While moving to inquiry lessons sounds desirable, planning for exploratory units is difficult. It is much easier to plan a lecture than it is to create an investigation that relies on the diverse interpretations and solution methods of students. Oftentimes, students' approaches are unique and, if not planned for, can lead to unproductive classroom sessions.

Join Michelle Stephan, David Pugalee, Julie Cline, and Chris Cline, coauthors of the new ASCD book Lesson Imaging in Math and Science: Anticipating Student Ideas and Questions for Deeper STEM Learning, in an engaging webinar where they will present techniques you can use to understand the goals of inquiry STEM lessons, anticipate how students might engage in these explorations, and engineer productive whole class discussions based upon students' reasoning. These strategies encompass what we call Lesson Imaging. This webinar will be useful for classroom STEM teachers, and especially helpful for STEM coaches and administrators who lead professional learning communities.
