K-5 Science Deep Dive 2014-2015 Background

At the Deep Dive, the group analyzed various types of CSISD science data.


The process the group took a part of included:


  • noticing the patterns in our data,
  • wondering about why these patterns were teased out of all the data,
  • offered possible solutions and/or designs to support Science learning.

Science Leadership Team & Science Campus Leaders

The Science Leadership Team consists of elementary, intermediate, & middle school teacher representatives.


Elementary campuses will be represented by 1 science teacher per grade level.


Intermediate & Middle School campuses will be represented by all grade level science teachers.


Each campus will also designate one of these team members to be their Science Campus Leader. This person will be a liaison between the campus and the district Science Coordinator. This group will have additional meetings to continue the work of the whole Science Leadership Team.


Action Needed by September 10:

Please add the names of your campus Science Leadership Team members to the Google doc. Also, mark the representative who will be the Campus Science Leader.
