Webinar Description

To support implementation of the NGSS in Earth and Space Sciences, it will take partnerships between school districts, state education departments, and 2- and 4-year colleges and universities. A consortium of Washington State organizations is currently working to improve science learning for all Washington State students by creating a new vision for STEM teacher preparation aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics and Language Arts. This webinar will focus on the conditions that support success in building this consortium, the progress thus far, and examples of actions that are going forward through the consortium.
