If you are lucky enough to teach with Miller & Levine’s “Biology,” I would definitely look into the professional development associated with it through Pearson.
Miller & Levine Biology, or “the macaw book,” is an awesome, well thought out text book. While my biology classes don’t have an official textbook, I rely on this book heavily as a resource. I would love to go to their PDs which include
- Coaching & Modeling
- Understanding by Design
- Personalize & Differentiate Instruction
- Science by Inquiry
It looks like something your district or larger organization would have to organize, but I think they would be very valuable.
