Curious about the Next Generation Science Standards?
According to the National Science Teachers Association, 26 states are leading the development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), led by the bi-partisan group Achieve. The science education community got its first glimpse of the NGSS draft when it was released in May. Achieve will release a second draft for public comment this fall. Here’s a preview of things to come!
Join Marygrove College MAT Coordinator of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Dr. Charles Pearson for a discussion about the current status of the NGSS, and how you can keep abreast of the latest changes in the process. A 30-year veteran educator, Dr. Pearson taught middle school science for many years and was a principal for nine. He’ll share his passion for teaching science, and give you some insights to make the most of your classroom time.
Find out about the “big three” dimensions:
1. Scientific and engineering practices: modeling, evaluating, analyzing
2. Crosscutting concepts: energy, patterns, cause & effect
3. Disciplinary core ideas: key ideas that relate to students’ interests, and future jobs
