Why is this important?

This partner's approach and services

How we provide curriculum-aligned PL


Workshops are used for small learning goals delivered over a brief period of time, 1-3 hours. BSCS uses workshops to introduce programs for consideration such as NextGenTIME, that may be implemented on their own using free online resources, with direct support from BSCS or through a combination of both approaches.


Coaching is an opportunity for educators to reflect on their own practice. A coach can make a teacher’s goals, beliefs and assumptions about their practice visible through probing and reflective dialogue. This is an effective tool for refining teaching practices. Coaching is often integrated into a larger professional development program.


A key feature of many BSCS professional learning programs are PLCs that support teacher learning of new curriculum and strategies through a video-based lesson analysis approach. In small teams, teachers analyze videos and student work from their own classrooms and reflect on how they can improve their practice.


BSCS offers consulting services to school sites, districts and states in order to strengthen their capacity for system change, promote the adoption and implementation of high quality standards-designed instructional materials, and promote the development of effective professional learning systems for science.
