NGSS Pathways for Educators

Academy educators offer insight in new article

The California Academy of Sciences has engaged more than 1,000 Bay Area teachers in our NGSS workshop pathway over the last five years, and we'd like to share with you what we've learned from this experience!

Check out a new article the award-winning peer-reviewed journal Science and Children, written by senior associate of teacher professional development Clea Matson and former teacher professional development team member at the Academy, Kathryn Danielson that describes four steps informal science institutions can take to tie teacher professional development to the NGSS and the needs of their local teacher audience.
