Join other Maine educators as we learn more about the Framework for K-12 Science Education Vision. Anita Bernhardt, Science and Technology Specialist for the Maine Department of Education, will offer two sessions that build on the conversations from the summer Framework strand that was held in July and August. It is not necessary to have attended the summer workshops to register for this program. The September session will focus on the Crosscutting Concepts and the October session will address integration of the three dimensions. The sessions will model components of the Framework and will help you to prepare to implement new standards.
