My Students

I am a science coach with Sacramento City Unified School District. I support all of our middle and high school teachers with science. Several of my science teachers have signed up to work with me around the integration of SEL (Social Emotional Learning) in science. We will be working together using a map called Equity Maps to track student Spiderweb Conversations. We are focussing on academic conversations using scientific language. SCUSD has 70,000 students, 70% are socioeconomically disadvantaged, 12% are special education, 20% are English Language learners. There is a strong desire in our district for social justice and I personally believe that success in science is one way to better prepare students for the future.

My Project

This IPad will allow me to support teachers in using a new app called Equity Maps to track student conversations, specifically spiderweb conversations. These science circles focus on academic conversations, science vocabulary, social emotional learning, many of the NGSS practices such as model building and asking/answering questions. The app tracks students conversations during science circle and allows students to reflect on how much or how little they contributed to each discussion. The app I will be supporting teachers in using can only be used on an IPad, not a cell phone or computer so the IPad is critical for the Equity Maps app to be used in these critical science conversations.
