Making Sense of SCIENCE - Next Generation Science Implementation: Systems course K-5 2019 (704/6810) 

This 2-day Making Sense of SCIENCE (MSS) course provides opportunities for teachers to engage in adult-level, inquiry-based, multi-dimensional science learning guided by next generation pedagogy, to analyze their learning experiences and common student challenges in science, and to strategize for implementing this type of next generation science learning in their classrooms. 

The course also provides an opportunity for participants to use their developing understanding of structure and philosophy of next generation science education to evaluate NGSS-shifted student curricula — both preparing them to teach next generation science curricula and participate in state and district NGSS curriculum adoption efforts.

Participants will also receive a short student unit on systems for their grade level designed from the ground up for NGSS. The unit includes, a teacher guide, student resources and a materials list.

Cost:  $250, all materials included plus continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
