MEETING INVITATION

This email is being sent to you because you have been identified by your school as the lead Science teacher. OIT in collaboration with the Science department is going to revamp grade 6 1:1 Science curriculum to not include the probes. We are then going to write an added layer that can be used in grades 6, 7 and 8 which would include using the probes in all grade levels. Our mission is to have these pieces written and in place within the next couple of months. Our office is looking for Science teachers who are willing to meet after school at our Court Square location to plan, develop and write grade 6 first, then write the probe piece. Please let me know if you are interested in this endeavor. For each piece there will be a maximum of 24 hours of meeting time and 24 hours of writing time. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

This is the schedule for re-writing grade 6. Participants must be able to attend ALL dates. Thanks.
