Lesson Study on NYS Science Standards at Cazenovia Elementary School

“Save the Sand Towers,” a lesson study project based on the new New York State Science Standards, was held last week at Burton Street Elementary in Cazenovia. News Channel 9 wrote about how these lesson study projects help both students and teachers feel more confident with the new lesson materials and standards. This project was run by Professor Sharon Dotger (Science Education) and OCM-BOCES Center for Innovative Science Education, as part of a 100Kin10 grant from the Smithsonian Science Education Center.
