At Lawrence Hall of Science, University of California, Berkeley
April 18 – 20, 2006
Hosted by NOAA, National Geographic Society, COSEE—California, Lawrence Hall of Science
Draft INTERNAL Agenda Version 3.1.
Tuesday April 18
8:30am   Continental Breakfast at LHS
9am Opener/Introductions/Review of Ocean Literacy Campaign
          Thought Swap:
  • Tell your partner what role you have played in the Ocean Literacy Campaign so far
  • Tell your partner one thing you know about the impact of the Campaign so far
  • What do you think we should try to accomplish next?
  • What do you think 2nd graders should know about your principle?
  • What do you think 5th graders should know about your principle?
  • What do you think 8th graders should know about your principle?
  • What do you think 12th graders should know about your principle?

Welcome: COSEE, NGS, NOAA, NMEA, LHS, College of Exploration
9:45        Overview of the Workshop:
  • Goals for the meeting
    • Develop a draft ocean literacy scope and sequence for all grade bands
    • Discuss how ocean literacy “fits” in California and Michigan state efforts; case studies for how to implement ocean literacy at the state level
    • Identify ocean literacy future needs, priorities and actions
    • Document meeting results, summary and next steps online
  • How we got here
    • Oceans For Life, Ocean Commission, Pew Commission, COSEE, NMEACommittee, Ocean Literacy Through Science Standards Workshops
  • Impact and National Significance
    • White House Ocean Action Plan
    • California Ocean Awareness Campaign
    • NOAA Environmental Literacy Grants
    • Conference on Ocean Literacy
    • Several States Considering Changes to Standards
    • Textbook Publishers and Curriculum Developers
  • Purposes of a Scope & Sequence
    • Guide for Teachers
    • Guide for Standards Developers
    • Guide for Curriculum and Text Book Developers
    • Guide for Assessment Developers
    • Demonstrates rigor, coherence, research base
  • Rationale for our approach
    • Research base, learning trajectories, progress variables, learning progressions, mind mapping/concept mapping
  • Assumptions
    • Our products won’t be finished (primitive but thoughtful drafts?)
    • Need broadest community input (starting today) to ensure buy- in and peer review
    • We will use content found in Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts.   New content will be captured in a “parking lot”for future use—we don’t want to be distracted by editing or revising Essential Principles…
  • Overview of comments from pre- meeting on-line survey

10:30      BREAK
10:45      The Conceptual Flow Process
Make a Model Conceptual Flow for Matter: This is a whole group process guided by a facilitator.  We will develop a Flow describing Physical Science concepts related to Matter.
12:15pm Lunch
1pm        Overview of the Analysis of States’ Science Standards
How we’ll use them as a tool: I don’t know yet how many states we’ll actually get through, but we will share summary information about which standards occur most frequently at which grades.  This is a tool, not intended to drive the process, but rather to inform it.
1:30pm            Form teams by Principle and Begin Conceptual Flow Development for Grade Spans: K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9- 12: I hope that each team will have a facilitator experienced in developing Cfs.
(4pm or 4:30pm Comments from Elizabeth Stage?)  Not sure yet when Elizabeth will be available, but I think she’ll drop in twice during the meeting.
5pm        Discussion, comment cards
5:30        Wine and Cheese reception,
(Evening: Post meeting results to share with on-line participants.)
7pm        Dinner together at a restaurant.

NOTES:
April 3, 2006 Meeting Lynn, Catherine, Craig, Kathy, Jo
3 possible uses for teachers:
Ocean as a yearlong theme
Teach a unit on the ocean
Insert ocean examples into regular standards-based science units
Concept Matrix: Big Ideas across top, grade levels/spans down left side.
Key is that you can’t understand the mainstream, basic (general) science standard/concept w/o understanding the ocean example and perspective. Not everything about the ocean, but rather we’ve focused on the essential content.  Can’t be science literate w/o being ocean literate.  For example, can’t understand productivity without understanding chemosynthesis; can’t understand trophic levels without understanding microbes in ocean; can’t understand diversity without understanding phyletic diversity in ocean vs. species diversity on land; can’t understand “landforms” without understanding ocean features.
Pre-think first related to what kids should know at different grades.  New ideas will emerge that are not on the Olit brochure, put them in the parking lot.
