SESSION 1 of an NGSS series for K-12 educators
Presenter: Carolyn Higgins
Participants will experience a model NGSS aligned activity and identify the three dimensions within the model activity. After reflecting on the dimensions that were integrated within the model activity, participants will examine a unit of study that they teach to determine how the 3 dimensions can be incorporated. Finally, participants will work together to develop an action plan of how to increase student focus on the use of specific practices and crosscutting concepts.
Future sessions will relate to specific Science & Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, Integration of Engineering, and Connections to CCSS ELA & Math
