Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
Are you an NGSS/STEM novice looking for the best place to get started? Participants will learn how to read NGSS Performance Expectations (PEs). You will learn that NGSS is more than just a change in what content is taught at each grade level; it introduces a whole new set of engineering standards to the playing field and also a whole new way to teach science (inquiry-based, problem solving). You'll receive an overview of the three dimensions of NGSS: disciplinary core ideas (DCIs), science and engineering practices (SEPs), and cross-cutting concepts (CCCs). If that sounds overwhelming to you now, take comfort in the fact that you will understand exactly what this means by the end of the workshop, along with your new repertoire of acronyms.
