To Analyze Instruction, Option E:
Instruction Aimed at Benchmark 1A, The Scientific World View (3-5)#1

Estimated Time: 3.5 hours.

Overview: Participants study parts of Science for All Americans and Benchmarks for Science to enhance their understanding of the intent of Benchmark 1A Scientific World View (3-5)#1:

Participants then read several scenarios describing instruction and evaluate how effectively the instruction addresses the benchmark. If time permits, participants consider how the instruction could be improved to address the benchmark more effectively.

This option is appropriate for K-12 teachers from different science disciplines. The scenarios give participants an opportunity to apply their understanding of the benchmark to analyzing and improving instruction. However, because teachers may be more familiar with the traditional science topics in Options A-D, this option on The Scientific World View section of Benchmarks might best serve as a second case, after a group has analyzed instruction using one of the other options.
