Deconstructing Performance Expectations Towards an NGSS Classroom (for all grade levels)
Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at LEARN 8:30am – 3:00pm
Participants will explore the Next Generation Science Standards in more depth and participate in discussions and analyses of how educators can begin to implement 3-dimensional learning. Participants will be introduced to new lesson planning tools and strategies to begin embracing NGSS pedagogy whether it’s with existing lessons or with new materials and resources. Using activities from JASON’s Climate: Seas of Change, participants will unpack a performance expectation (MS-ESS2-6), specifically looking at how climate is created, climate modifiers, and the relationship between wind patterns and ocean circulation. While using JASON resources to explore what 3-dimensional learning looks like, this experience is intended to empower educators to apply and adapt these tools and strategies to meet the needs of their school’s curricula and classroom settings.
