Description

The organization of this 5-year community-based project consisting of teachers, administrators and university staff centred on a series of deliberations and workshops. Each series included discussion of the multimodal character of scientific discourse and the roles of oral and written discourse in doing and learning science; a variety of discipline-specific literacy strategies that reflected the nature of science and the research evidence behind each strategy (evidence-based practice). Participants had opportunities to discuss implementation of the strategies and to share ideas about embedding the strategies into their classroom science curriculum. Discussion of classroom applications and evaluative feedback on implementation were a part of each workshop. The strategy workshops included demonstration lessons, team teaching, and working sessions where teams of teachers collaborated in the creation of instructional resources. Due to the collaborative nature of the project, the workshop schedule reflected teachers’ interests and students’ needs. Over the first 2 years of the project, responsibility for the delivery of professional development workshops did shift from teachers to researchers in response to the preferences expressed by the group. However, in Year 5 the leadership shifted back to the teachers as part of the community-based, cascading leadership model designed to leave a legacy of science advocates (lead teachers) in these three middle schools. The selection of workshop topics and activities remained the outcome of discussion with participants. The final cycle of professional development involve summer writing sessions that produced classroom strategies and associated instructional resources, a two-part workshop series and related professional development resources, and the delivery of the 2 workshops in each of the participating middle schools.
