Webinar Description

Implementing the NGSS calls for students to use disciplinary norms and practices to construct explanatory knowledge. Critical to this goal is shifting the source of epistemic agency from the teacher to the students. This webinar will describe the NGSS Storyline Approach, which organizes units of instruction around students' iterative investigation and explanation of an anchor phenomenon. This webinar will also discuss tools and routines that teachers can use to design instruction using this approach.
