Abstract Details (PID = P302)
Title:WS: Everything You Want to Know About NGSS but Are Afraid to Ask (P302)
Description:The Next Generation Science Standards represent a new way of thinking about teaching and learning science. The Institute for Quality Science Teaching at the Museum of Science and Industry provides professional learning opportunities for science teachers in Chicagoland and surrounding areas. Our approach is to ground everything we do in the NGSS and take a deep dive into all the elements of 3-dimensional learning. Professional learning programs at MSI are invested in helping teachers understand how to teach science effectively to meet these standards. Teachers in our programs learn science content in the context of 3-dimensional lessons, as instructors demonstrate instructional practices that enable NGSS-aligned teaching and learning. This presentation will review the basics of the NGSS, the 3 dimensions, how they're combined in Performance Expectations, and the basics of enacting the NGSS in the classroom. Participants will engage in collaborative learning and reflection as we describe the NGSS and demonstrate what 3-dimensional teaching looks like in classrooms. If you need a refresher, just want a review, or still don't have all those acronyms straight in your head, this is the presentation for you. (PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED. LIMITED SEATING.)
