Math & Science

 
Marin's Next Generation Collaborative for Science and Math (M-NGC) is a California Math and Science Partnership Grant. M-NGC is a partnership with: College of Marin, Dominican University, and the Exploratorium. The purpose of this grant is to build the capacity of Marin County K-5 teachers to develop student knowledge, skills, and practices, in both Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards for Math (CCSS-M).
 
A central tenet of the grant is to establish equitable classrooms that support all learners. Workshops will emphasize problem-solving, use of questioning strategies that support deep understanding, and building students' academic language through hands-on learning, discussion, and writing.
 
This is a three-year grant with each year focusing on a different science domain (earth, life, physical), as well as engaging in real-world applied math problems related to this content. Teachers will participate in 60 hours of intensive workshops each year and 24 hours of follow up learning sessions.

Project Based Learning Collaborative
Shoreline Unified School District's Project Based Learning Collaborative for Integrated Science and Math (PBLC) is a partnership between the district, Marin County Office of Education, Dominican University College of Natural Science and Mathematics and Department of Education, College of Marin, University of California Museum of Paleontology, California Academy of Sciences, and the Buck Institute for Education.  PBLC is a professional development project designed to build the capacity of middle and high school science and math teachers to develop student knowledge, skills, practices, and an integrated understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards for Math (CCSS-M).
 
Teachers will create Project Based Learning (PBL) units and lessons informed by real-life problems, research, and local ecology. 
 
This is a three-year grant with each year focusing on a different science domain (earth, life, physical), as well as engaging in real-world applied math problems related to this content. Teachers will participate in 60 hours of intensive workshops each year and 24 hours of follow up learning sessions.
