ABE March Roundtable: Peer Models for ABE Teachers

Join us at our next Roundtable on 28 March at 16:00 UTC as we learn about how teachers in ABE Italy and ABE Türkiye collaborate and use peer models to learn from one another's science instruction. ABE Italy and ABE Türkiye will share how they utilize videos to observe and give feedback and share ideas on how others can do the same. In addition, the sites and their teachers will share strategies for implementing their own inquiry lessons as part of their community of practice. Sign up now and be a part of this great discussion!
