The Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) provide a new vision for effective K-12 science programs that is consistent with the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and ELA. These two interactive and engaging workshops will help participants, both teachers and administrators, understand how NGSS can be used to complement and in fact far exceed the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Science to improve science instruction in your school, district, and classroom. Session 1 (August 4) will introduce (1) the three dimensions of NGSS, (2) tools for helping schools, administrators, and teachers develop course scope and sequences and (3) strategies and templates for building instructional units. Session 2 (August 8) will focus on Engineering and how engineering and science are intertwined yet distinct disciplines. The content of session 2 does not build on session 1. Participants may sign up for either session 1 or session 2 or both.
