Kate Soriano, NSTA Standards Implementation Specialist
The NSTA Single-Point Rubric for Sensemaking Lessons (aka Sensemaking Tool), adapted from the research-based NGSS Lesson Screener, is designed to help educators be critical consumers of curricular materials as well as create and/or revise science lessons to reflect the instructional shifts (sensemaking) required by the NGSS and three-dimensional state standards based on A Framework for K-12 Science Standards.
In this web seminar you will become familiar with the NSTA Sensemaking Tool and consider how this tool can be used to choose lessons (critical consumer), revise or create lessons for personal use, and revise or create lessons for wider use.
