Virtual Book Study - Science

Our Annual, Virtual Science Education Book Study

PAEMST logoEach year DPI partners with the Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers to support a virtual book study. We aim to connect educators, learn together, and support teachers who are applying for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching. Resources and recordings for each year are below, starting with the most recent book study.

2023 Book Study - Climate Change

We focused on the NSTA Press book, Understanding Climate Change, Grades 7-12 (with online extras)

2022 Book Study - Crosscutting Concepts

We focused on the NSTA Press book, Crosscutting Concepts: Strengthening Science and Engineering Learning

2021 Book Study - Equity and Access in Science Education

This year we're doing things a little bit differently. We'll have our book study discussions every month of the school year (except December) on the 3rd Monday of each month. We will not have one specific book, but instead we'll dig into a variety of articles and book chapters.
