CSS Teachers at the Calgary Science Network Symposium

Two of our Grade 4 teachers are presenting at the Elementary Science Symposium hosted by the Calgary Science Network on Sept 30th. Our teachers are offering two 90 minute sessions on the Light and Shadow unit of grade 4 Science. They have some fantastic hands on material ready to share.

The Start of a New Journey

Connect! is the Professional Learning Journal of the Calgary Science School.

As we start up this new initiative, the blog will serve a number of purposes:
  1. As a place to share the classroom projects, assignments and assessment practices of the Calgary Science School
  2. As a place where CSS teachers and administrators can publicly reflect and engage in dialogue on their practice
  3. As a place where CSS can build a learning network outside the walls of our school. We want to collaborate with and learn from other teaching professionals, around the city, province, country and around the world.
Come join us on our new journey!
