The Northwest Regional Learning Consortium is partnering with Alberta Science Network (ASN) to bring a half day of Grade 4, 5 and 6 science PD to Grande Prairie and area teachers.
Join us for a combined two plus hours of science professional development covering two different science units per grade.The ASN Teacher Workshops program provides teachers with hands-on demonstrations and experiments that they can use in their classrooms. ASN focuses on the theory behind the science and gives teachers confidence and clarity in the subject matter.
Grade 4 sessions will be presented in the morning and the Gr. 5 and Gr. 6 sessions will be presented in the afternoon according to the attached schedule.
Jeffrey Newton PhD., joins us from Edmonton and Ed Kusmirski P.Eng., from Calgary to individually present workshops on the various curriculum units. ASN’s Teacher Workshops program has been running since 1998 in Calgary and was introduced in Edmonton in 2015.
The program is popular and valuable especially to new teachers or teachers new to a grade level. ASN began partnering with Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortium since 2016 and run workshops around the province.
