Redesigning Towards an NGSS Classroom (for all grade levels)
Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at Southington Public Schools 8:30am – 3:00pm
Don’t throw those lessons out with the bathwater! “Tried and true” lessons that have created meaningful experiences for your students for years do not need to be discarded with the advent of new standards. Join us as we share how JASON Learning is redesigning labs to support the transition to an NGSS classroom. Educators will experience two versions of a JASON lab, one created pre-NGSS, and the other a newly designed NGSS version. We will examine specific modifications and the strategies and tools used to make the adaptations through hands-on experience, discussion, and the use of the EQuIP rubric. Toward the end of the session, educators are invited to examine a “tried and true” lesson of their own and apply these new strategies and tools to make future modifications. Come prepared to share ideas and engage in this deconstruct and re-design discourse.
