Sneak Peek at NGSS Demystified
Planning a professional development workshop around the NGSS? The Science and Engineering Practices are a great place to start!
Check out the first three PD activities from our workshop library!
At long last, we've soft-launched NGSS Demystified: A Toolkit for Training Teachers. This resource base shares our library of well-tested activities that have been used to train hundreds of Bay Area teachers on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Currently, we've published videos and activity write-ups from our "Introduction to the NGSS" workshop, specifically those related to Exploring the Science and Engineering Practices.
- These materials are designed to help you facilitate successful NGSS training for a team of educators.
- On each activity page, you will find a short video overview of the activity and a fully detailed lesson plan.
- These three introductory activities about the Science and Engineering Practices will give your educators a strong foundation to build on as they prepare for implementation.
- Each activity can stand alone, and you can mix and match with your own materials.
