Introduction to the NGSS (grades K - 12)
How will science education be transformed by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)? This beginner’s-level overview will give you the tools and confidence to start preparing for the new standards.
Join us to explore the principles underlying the NGSS. Get introduced to the Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas that comprise the new standards, and learn how to read those NGSS tables!
This workshop is intended for educators who are new to the NGSS and want a basic overview. If you already have the basics down and want to go deeper, check out Exploring Phenomena.
