We assist educators in using OpenSciEd to its fullest potential to help students make sense of scientific phenomena through asking driving questions, holding deep discussions, building consensus, and investigating.
We support educators in harnessing the OpenSciEd platform to ensure equitable access to science content and drive student learning. We support skill development through personalized pathways built from Workshops, 1:1 Coaching, Learning Walks, and BL Connect to achieve clear outcomes.
Outcome: I use curriculum materials to drive student-led scientific investigation.
Outcome: I use the curriculum’s storyline materials to effectively plan for and pace student investigations.
Outcome: I implement strategies to meet the needs of all students throughout a unit.
Outcome: I leverage curriculum materials to help students make meaning of scientific concepts.
“My BetterLesson coach encouraged me constantly and helped me work through setbacks on a regular basis. Her encouragement and positive outlook, as well as her understanding of real-world conditions for teachers, helped me to be more confident in my own classroom.”
“I was very nervous about this new curriculum. After taking this session it made me feel at ease and organized. I also became more excited to be able to implement this in the school setting hopefully with students soon.”
