Science and Engineering in the K-5 Classroom: Implementing the Next Generation Science Standards

Event date:

Science and Engineering in the K-5 Classroom: Implementing the Next Generation Science Standards

3 graduate credit - hybrid course

Instructor:  Liz Mirra

Target Audience:  Elementary Science Teachers, Teacher Leaders and Coaches

 

This 3 credit hybrid course will allow elementary educators to explore what it means to teach the NGSS at their specific grade level by deepening their knowledge of the disciplinary core ideas, the science and engineering practices, and the crosscutting concepts that their students are expected to master.  There are four face-to-face sessions

 

How to incorporate the science and engineering practices and the engineering design process will be modeled at our class sessions. We will look at the overlap between the Common Core State Standards and the NGSS and how to seamlessly integrate the two sets of standards.  Each participant will end the course with a complete instructional sequence aligned to a NGSS performance expectation for their grade level that they can use as a model for planning future instruction.

 

Elizabeth Mirra is the Math & Science Instructional Coach at Springfield High School in Springfield, VT. She was the 2011 recipient of the prestigious President's Award for Excellence in Science Teaching. Liz was involved in reviewing and providing feedback on the Next Generation Science Standards throughout their development.

Implementing the Next Generation Science Standards:

Leading, Supporting, and Coaching Teachers through the Transition

Presenter: Liz Mirra, Math & Science Instructional Coach

Target Audience: Science Teacher Leaders, Coaches and Administrators

The Next Generation Science Standards call for teachers to make significant and potentially challenging changes to their pedagogical practices. This two-day workshop will help science leaders to strengthen their own skills and knowledge so they can clarify and prioritize the work that needs to happen in their schools and districts to make the vision of the NGSS a reality.
