Implementing the NGSS in Earth and Space Sciences requires a shift in how we teach and think about learning. As Chair of the NGSS Earth and Space Science Writing Team, Dr. Wysession has introduced educators to the NGSS through over 70 talks and workshops. In this webinar, Dr. Wysession will identify best practices for helping educators understand the complex vision of the NGSS, highlight areas of common concern and how those may be addressed, and describe helpful resources for sharing NGSS with educators in your own practice.
