GLENVILLE, WV – Delta Education, a business that believes in the importance of inquiry-based, hands-on science teaching methods, is sponsoring two free presentations at Glenville State College for current and future educators, school administrators, and the general public.

The Full Option Science System (FOSS) is Delta Education’s flagship K-8 curriculum program.  Developed at the University of California at Berkeley, it has become the most widely used elementary school hands-on science curriculum in the United States and will be featured in one of the presentations. Both workshops will take place on Wednesday, February 25th at GSC in the Mollohan Campus Community Center Ballroom.

The two presentations will discuss the integration of the FOSS program into West Virginia’s Next Generation Education Standards and the ways elementary school students learn.

Former classroom teacher, Kip Bisignano, will present the first workshop from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on February 25th, focusing on science-centered language development and communication. Participants will engage in hands-on science activities and learn about strategies, instructional routines, and scaffolds that support all domains of West Virginia’s Next Generation Standards for English Language Arts (ELA). Participants also will receive resources and strategies to integrate ELA and science. Bisignano’s workshop is geared toward public school administrators, elementary and middle school administrators and teachers, and university faculty and pre-service teachers. Attendance is capped at 48 people and reservations are required.

World-renowned neuroscientist Dr. Kenneth Wesson will present the second workshop from 6:00-8:00 p.m.; discussing the neuroscience of learning, early brain development, design and engineering, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) and STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, & Math), contextual learning, and curriculum development. This presentation is appropriate for pre-service and in-service teachers and administrators of all grade levels, as well as the general public. Attendance is capped at 120 and reservations also are required.

“These workshops will both be excellent. Dr. Wesson is a world-renowned neuroscientist who has focused primarily on learning processes and the human brain. We are pleased that he and Mr. Bisignano will be presenting their engaging and informative lectures at Glenville State College,” said GSC Professor of Physical Science Dr. Joe Evans.

Both events are being presented through the generosity of Delta Education. For more information or to register, contact Evans at Joe.Evans@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6314.
