BPS SciCast Videos

  • In 2015, BPS science teacher leaders created nearly 200 screencasts to help you teach science in BPS!

    Each year the Science Department supported its teacher leaders to prepare and present science unit PD for novices and veterans. With the increasing scarcity of resources, teacher leaders were asked to create screencasts to help our teachers implement the science instructional materials, K through Chemistry. Within each video, a teacher leader presents an overview of the unit, then digs a little deeper,  walking through lessons that are less intuitive or more challenging to set up. 

    We thank our wonderful teachers who really put themselves out there to create these instructional resources for you!
