Our Elementary Science Steering Committee (ESSC), in cooperation with the PI-CRUST Project and our district's Directors of Professional Development (Mara Lud) and Curriculum (Linda Angel-Weinberg), plans to offer a variety of workshops and in-service sessions during the 2005-2006 school year.   Details of these programs will be posted here as they are developed.

1. The first "science" PD session of the new school year will take place the afternoon of August 25, 2005:

LSD Science:  Steering Committees, PI-CRUST, PROM/SE, and other projects

2. Our ESSC 2004 proposal for a professional development session about "science notebooks" -- which was rejected for the 2004-2005 school year -- has been re-worked and will be offered this fall as a series of three PD-Day morning sessions:

"Science Notebooks" PD Series

8:00 AM - 11:00 AM

September 14, October 3, and November 8, 2005

3. Our ESSC-sponsored professional development series about "science notebooks" will be continued this spring as a series of three additional PD-Day morning sessions:

"Science Notebooks" PD Series -- Part 2

8:00 AM - 11:00 AM

February 1, March 1, and April 26, 2006
