Science and health content are essential at all grade levels. The importance of science and health initiatives extend past the walls of the school and should be promoted by the students and families in their homes. This begins with an understanding of the standards and how they are being taught and supported in the classroom.
Create a 10-12 digital slide presentation to be presented to students’ families. Include the following:
Welcome slide outlining the session objectives based on where the presentation will be held (i.e., welcome night, curriculum night, open house).
An overview of the Next Generation Science Standards.
A comparison of your state’s adopted science standards to the Next Generation Science standards to promote mastery of learning for all students in the inclusive classroom. If your state has adopted the NGSS, discuss when the adoption took place and a short comparison to the previously adopted standards.
An overview of your state’s adopted health standards.
Describe two potential science projects that integrate health and could take place throughout the school year. Discuss how students’ strengths and weaknesses will be considered to allow equal access for all and how each lesson will provide an opportunity for students to practice skills that contribute to good health.
Next Generation Science Standards and learning objectives to be used for each project.
Identify ways that the projects can be differentiated to support students with disabilities, ELL, gifted, early finishers, and students with 504 Plans.
Share examples of how families can promote science and health standards at home to help create a mutually respectful learning environment.
Title slide, presenter’s notes, and reference slide.

Finally, your director asks you to incorporate  one example of good practice for each sphere.
Focus Assignment
1.  Create a graphic organizer, using basic digital art tools, that shows  the six overlapping spheres of influence of home and school based on  Epstein’s model. Then, write a sentence for each sphere that summarizes  the essence of its meaning. Last, add one example of good practice to  each sphere.
Self-Evaluation

Please answer each question separately. One question per page
Describe  the process of perception as a series of steps, beginning with the  environmental stimulus and culminating in the behavioral responses of  perceiving, recognizing, and acting.

Describe and justify how your pamphlet would improve teaching and learning.

To create an informational pamphlet for parents about good parenting  based on current brain research and to evaluate your pamphlet.

Scenario:
You are a teacher in a kindergarten class in a school  known for having very involved parents. Lately, several parents have  asked you about CDs they should purchase (e.g., Baby Einstein), or  specific educational toys designed to promote their child’s brain  development. The message you want to get across is that developing a  stable and nurturing relationship with your child is the number one  goal—far more effective than any product you can buy. Rather than having  parents put you on the spot about the “right way to teach their child,”  you decide to write a pamphlet for parents with ideas for the types of  dynamic interactions with the environment they can engage in with their  child. You also decide to incorporate a list of appropriate materials  for parents to have on hand at home, such as soft toys and beginning  books. You also include a Q&A section in which you briefly discuss  developmentally appropriate curricula (as opposed to curriculum that is  too advanced for young children).
Focus Assignment

1. Create a pamphlet for parents in which you explain how the  latest brain research has important implications for raising young  children. Provide three activities for healthy brain development that  incorporate stimulating activities such as touching, singing, playing  simple games, and talking. Incorporate a section describing three  stimulating materials for parents to have on hand at home. Last,  incorporate a two-item Q&A section to briefly discuss  developmentally appropriate curricula for the children in your  classroom.
2. Be sure to read the SELF-EVALUATION section below  to guide your thinking. Write your self-evaluation after you have  completed your pamphlet.
Self-Evaluation
1. For each activity in your pamphlet:
a. Explain how this activity addresses the issues in the scenario.

2. Describe and justify how your pamphlet would improve teaching and learning in the scenario.
