Translating NGSS for Instruction

Monday, August 20, 2018
9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Open to K-12 teachers

This workshop focuses on the purposeful integration of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with Common Core ELA and is open to all grade levels with emphases on K-6.

  • Deepen your understanding of NGSS
  • Experience an integrated science and ELA lesson to develop a shared vision of standards-aligned instruction
  • Explore NGSS 3-dimensional teaching and learning.
  • Learn about curriculum resources

Participants will explore earth science Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) and engage in model lessons from K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and HS (including an outdoor experience) to examine:

  • Common Core convergence using notebooks, sense-making discussions, close reading, and vocabulary development
  • Formative assessment protocol to look at student work (notebook entries) and to guide instruction
  • Phenomena and constructing explanations using crosscutting concepts  (What that looks like at different grade spans K-12)
  • Practices for sense-making (models, explanations, argumentation, obtaining, evaluation, and communicating information)

This NGSS teacher workshop is provided at no cost to participants through a partnership of the Santa Cruz County Office of Education, the Lawrence Hall of Science, and the Seymour Marine Discovery Center. Lunch is included in the workshop.

Location: Each workshop session will be held at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center in Santa Cruz.
