FieldSTEM: ELA Performance Tasks and Field Investigations
Attention all K-12 Formal Educators!
Join Pacific Education Institute and support students to broaden their outdoor life experiences to deepen and enrich scientific thinking, writing, and communication. During the course of this workshop series, participants will experience select PEI Performance Task topics that engage students with relevant, scenario-based problems.
Participants will examine the ELA support structure of performance task collection and participate in investigations that provide additional background knowledge to reinforce student understanding. Learn how performance tasks embed NGSS in Common Core ELA writing practices to support students to build upon their observations and data gathering through selected sources and field investigation experiences.

- Asynchronous: complete field investigation experience (approx. 2 hours)
- Synchronous: Thursday, February 25, 2021, 4 PM to 5:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Participants who attend both synchronous sessions and complete all assigned work will receive:
