Dynamic Learning Maps® (DLM®) is pleased to offer science professional development modules 1 and 2, which are designed to help teachers learn about DLM science assessment structure and Essential Elements, as well as how to engage students in learning the concepts of the Essential Elements.
Special education teachers sometimes feel they need extra support adopting the new multidimensional approach that incorporates both science concepts and science practice in science education. These modules, titled DLM Science Standards Framework and Science and Engineering Practices, walk teachers through the process of including science concepts and practices in instruction. Since DLM science testlets are based on the multidimensional approach, these modules help teachers prepare students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills during the assessment.
You can access the science modules on the DLM professional development website by clicking here and selecting Science on the left sidebar. The modules are available in both facilitated and self-directed formats.
