The Journey North program is a free resource for elementary and middle school classes that is comprised of a variety of topics, lessons, and activities. Each thirty-minute professional development workshop provides an opportunity to see Journey North classrooms in action while exploring science inquiry and other standards-based teaching and learning practices.

Journey North's investigation into sunlight's seasonal changes takes students on an eleven-week-long investigative hunt known as Mystery Class. This workshop presentation chronicles the students' adventures as they track and analyze changes in sunlight north and south of the equator and follow a series of clues to locate the ten Journey North Mystery Classes around the world. 

SIE14005: Learning Science Through Inquiry: What Is Inquiry and Why Do It?

Credit Hours: 1.5

At the heart of inquiry teaching and learning is a positive environment that encourages and supports students on their learning paths. This course looks at what is needed for building that foundation and preparing your students for inquiry investigations.

SIE14007: Learning Science Through Inquiry: The Process Begins - Launching the Inquiry
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1.5

To inquire into specific scientific phenomena, students need to draw upon a foundation of experience. This course shows how you can encourage students to share and discuss what they already know, and to explore the materials and phenomena in an open-ended manner.

SIE14008: Learning Science Through Inquiry: Focus the Inquiry - Designing the Exploration
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1.5

Students' open exploration leads to a range of interests and questions that lead in turn to deeper investigation. This course looks at the design process-how you can guide students to plan and begin their investigations.

SIE14010: Learning Science Through Inquiry: Processing for Meaning During Inquiry
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"efaa153b0f682ae5170a3184fa0df28c":{"option":"1a","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1.5

Making meaning from investigations and experience requires that you guide student dialogue, encouraging your students to make connections, draw conclusions, and ask new questions. This course looks at the rationale for this kind of processing, and strategies that can help students construct new mental frameworks.

SIE14011: Learning Science Through Inquiry: Assessing Inquiry
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"c5f590d18e1ea128362eeafb7192cc21":{"option":"1e","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1.5

Assessment is an ongoing process in the classroom. This course looks at a variety of assessment strategies that range from the very informal formative assessments to formal summative assessments, and explores the purposes each can serve.

SIE14012: Learning Science Through Inquiry: Connecting Other Subjects to Inquiry
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}
TESS Domain: {"efaa153b0f682ae5170a3184fa0df28c":{"option":"1a","icon":"advertising-practice","default":1,"delete":0}}
Credit Hours: 1.5

This course explores how to use subjects like mathematics and language to further scientific inquiry and understanding of science concepts, and conversely, how science can aid learning in other subjects. It also reiterates the benefits of learning science through inquiry and explores your "next steps" along the inquiry journey.

SIE14013: Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science - Properties and Classification of Matter
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

Matter is all around us--it's what we are made of. Yet how do we define matter? What are the properties of matter that set it apart from something that is definitely not matter, like light? This workshop was produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. It is designed to help K-6 science teachers gain an understanding of such bedrock science concepts relevant to our modern standards-based curricula. Workshop participants build a working definition of matter, distinguish among the different forms it can take, investigate the differences between "essential" and "accidental" properties of matter, and explore the role of classification in science.

SIE14014: Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science - The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids, Liquids, and Gases
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the "particle model" can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.
