PlantingScience Workshop.

Join experienced PlantingScience teachers and scientist mentors to learn techniques that will make you a better mentor to student-led science investigations, especially in an asynchronous online setting. During this workshop, you'll learn more about the award-winning PlantingScience online mentoring program and results of NSF-funded research on the program's efficacy. You will also learn techniques to improve the effectiveness of your mentoring of student-led independent investigations. The workshop will cover classroom activities from several of our PlantingScience investigation themes as well as practice with using questioning techniques and scaffolding strategies helpful for anyone aiming to push student science thinking forward. Finally, we'll discuss the advantages and potential pitfalls to mentoring students asynchronously online and tips for working with teachers to make the most impact on students. This workshop is highly interactive and will provide lots of time for technique practice, analysis of scientist-student mentoring dialog, and a chance to hear from some participating PlantingScience teachers and mentors about their experiences.
