FOCUS: K-5 Talkin’ TEKS for Elementary Science/Science Interactive Notebooking (EL/MS)

This NEW FOCUS session is a fast-paced, interactive journey through earth, life, and physical science (with elementary and middle school breakouts). Sections include inferencing; experiments/labs and notebooking; experiences/observations and notebooking.

Please note: FOCUS sessions are designed to illustrate graphic organizer applications to particular content areas, not to learn basic skills in using graphic organizers. Implementation of relevant Common Core State Standards (and TEKS) is a focus within each module. Additionally, ideas for using graphic organizers as formative and summative assessment tools will also be addressed in each FOCUS institute.

This focus session consists of three separate modules one afternoon (1 pm-4 pm CST), one evening (6pm-8pm CST), and a final module the next morning (9am -12).

This is not a session for beginners; participants are expected to have prior knowledge and experience with Dinah Zike's Foldables. Participants pursuing certification as DZ trainers will complete additional follow-up requirements. The Dinah Zike Academy is an approved provider of Continuing Professional Education for the State of Texas--CPE Provider # 501-536.

Tuition: $350, includes all materials. A non-refundable deposit of $75 will be charged upon registration to reserve your spot.
