Open to: All Teachers/STEM teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Participants of the professional development workshop will use all three dimensions of NGSS to design a coherent unit plan that will foster enduring understanding of both content and big ideas in science. This workshop series will begin with an engineering challenge, leveraging this shared experience to talk about the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the language of 3-dimensional teaching. After getting comfortable with the language of NGSS participants will write a statement of inquiry for a unit of study.
In addition, participants will continue to add to this unit planner each day. Each day will focus on specific science and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts. Participant will leave with a NGSS-aligned unit plan ready for the classroom!
