Webinar Description:

How do you design a NGSS unit (or modify an existing NGSS storyline) so that it starts with powerful, authentic student questions? What are best practices for helping students channel their wonderings into rigorous, relevant investigations? And, what do you do with the questions you can't answer?

In this webinar, veteran Middle School science teacher, Nicole Bolduc, addresses these questions and more, as we take a deep dive into adapting the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) for the NGSS classroom. Using her own unit on sound as a template, Nicole will walk you through how to design for more student questioning in your own classroom. Leave with a specially curated set of resources and templates to get you started.

This webinar is the second in a series of two webinars about how to integrate the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). While there will be a brief recap at the start of this webinar, we suggest you review the March 5th webinar if possible.
