Due to the OK Teacher Walkout we have shifted Page Keeley's featured workshop, Uncovering Student Ideas and Practices, to Day 2 so that teacher's won't miss out on this opportunity! Page Keeley is the Senior Science Program Director at the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance, where she directs projects in the areas of leadership, standards-based curriculum, formative assessment, professional development design, and instructional coaching. She has directed several major National Science Foundation-funded projects and has authored nine books and several chapters and journal articles. Her books include Uncovering Student Ideas in Science Volumes 1-4, and Science Formative Assessment-75 Practical Strategies for Linking Assessment, Instructions, and Learning.
This featured workshop has limited seating so don't miss out!
The Oklahoma Science Teachers Association (OSTA) is the affiliate of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). OSTA is dedicated to addressing the interests and concerns of Oklahoma science educators, and to promoting high quality science education for Oklahoma's students, including developing students' interest and expertise in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). It is vital to our state's continued growth that science educators have the opportunity for continuous learning and networking that our annual event provides.
