Webinar Description

After having taught for more than 30 years, I've seen many education initiatives come and go, but am happy to say that the Next Generation Science Standards are here to stay. This webinar will highlight not only my experiences teaching the standards in a high school classroom, but also designing and running teacher professional development around the NGSS. I will focus on what I think are some of the most important, and unique, features: the mandate that every student receive access to all the standards, as well as the idea that all sciences can be driven by earth science phenomena. We will discuss different aspects of classroom practice that support NGSS implementation, as well as systemic changes like whole-district implementation teams and course model design. Special emphasis will be placed on equity and equitable teaching practices to engage all learners.
