Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) 103: A Focus on Engineering

As part of the RCOE NGSS Transition Series, this support will ask participants to engage in the conceptual shifts of the NGSS vision for science education for all students.  Learn how to develop a professional learning plan to prepare for NGSS.  Experience the engineering design core ideas of NGSS.  Engage in content specific performance expectations that link to engineering that will help students learn at the nexus of science and engineering practices.

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): A Focus on Crosscutting Concepts

As part of the RCOE NGSS Transition Series, this workshop will focus on how the seven crosscutting concepts of the NGSS deepen understanding of the practices, the core ideas and lead to productive inquiry.  We will explore ways to help students use the crosscutting concepts to think like scientists and engineers.

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): A Focus on Elementary School

As part of the RCOE NGSS Transition Series, this support will apply a planning tool to a learning sequence for grades K-5. Experience what the learning looks like in a classroom in a multi-day lesson.  Explore and compare sample course sequences.  Discuss with colleagues how this applies to your classroom and your instruction.

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): Administrator Strand, A Conversation on Implementation

As part of the RCOE NGSS Transition Series, this workshop will focus on how to support the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards at your school site and in the district as we focus on the implementation phase of the cycle.

Sorry, no currently scheduled trainings.


NGSS: Administrator Strand, A Conversation on Awareness

As part of the RCOE NGSS Transition Series, this support will focus on how to support the implementation of the NGSS at your school site and in your district through exploring various implementation resources and collaborating with other administrative leaders.
