In this session, teachers, instructional specialists, and coaches will learn an effective strategy for preparing students for the new biology end-of-course exam under the STAAR system.
This strategy centers on the Dana Center publication STAAR Biology Assessments: Module 1, which contains interactive, hands-on assessment activities that give students the opportunity to review all 16 of the science readiness standards that will be tested on the new biology end-of-course exam.
You will have the opportunity to engage in some of the assessment activities, and you will learn tips and techniques for successfully implementing the teaching strategies embedded in STAAR Biology Assessments, including an "at-a-glance" strategy for monitoring student progress.
Participants will receive a copy of the book and a CD with blackline masters.
