Citizen Science Level 2: Classroom Leadership and Science Process

Do you strive to engage your students in the full process of science—including explanations and reasoning?

Citizen Science

June 22-24

Past citizen science participants of UMN Monarch Lab programs have the opportunity to enrich classroom practice with a closer look at science process and the tools to share these with colleagues. Discuss and practice skills that are challenging to teach like how to connect evidence to reasoning and guide students to the next level of a full field investigation.

Two School Year Saturday Meetings (November & May)
  • Explore effective use of the Mini‐investigation, the Good Question lesson, and more on Claims, Evidence and Reasoning.

Three Meetings with Colleagues (on‐site at your school)
  • Support a colleague in implementing citizen science and science process techniques

  • Use leadership skills with tools provided by UMN Monarch Lab, and co‐instructors from Saint Paul Public Schools and Anoka‐Hennepin Public Schools
