Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Training
These workshops will build on our previous work with the conceptual shifts embodied in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), inquiry-based science instruction, assessing the performance expectations, and promoting academically productive classroom discussions. It is not necessary, however, that you attended last year's workshops to participate this year. We will continue to explore deeply the Science and Engineering Practices of developing and using scientific models; constructing scientific explanations; and engaging in scientific argument.
- participate in hands-on activities throughout the day.
- create manipulatives to bring excitement to learning in their classroom.
- explore strategies to increase engagement throughout lessons.
