     Level I SEPUP PD  

    Level I PD is for teachers new to the materials at their grade level.  We will go through each activity in each unit.  Some we will do in quite a bit of depth, some we may only spend a few minutes touching on.  The PD Leaders will also go through with you the various Science and Engineering Practices of the NGSS students will engage in in each activity.  This PD is progressive, each one builds off the previous.  There will be a 3 day session in the summer or make-up session in September.  There are then 6 follow-up sessions through the year listed below. Please make sure to bring your student book, journal, and teacher's guide with you each time - if you have them.  If you are unsure if this PD is for you please email James Hyde, Jhyde1@luc.edu, with questions.

     Level II SEPUP PD  

    It's back!  This is for teachers experienced with the materials at the grade level you are currently teaching - you've taught them for at least 1 full year (or have been attending Level I PDs this year).  We do not go through each activity individually but instead focus on going deeper in various areas such as assessment, analysis questions, the teacher resource section, literacy strategies, diverse learners, Science and Engineering Practices of the NGSS, etc.  There will also be ample time for teacher-to-teacher discourse as we know this is very valuable and can be a challenge when you are usually the only science teacher in your building!  If you are unsure if this PD is for you please email James Hyde, Jhyde1@luc.edu with questions.

    2017-2018 Level II PD dates: TBD
