Implementing the NGSS (NJSLS-S) Science & Engineering Practices

Description:

Students asking questions to drive their own learning, constructing scientific explanations to enhance their understanding and developing and using models to represent their ideas and the ideas of others are three explicit and essential Science and Engineering Practices called for in the Next Generation Science Standards.  Educators attending this interactive and engaging workshop will:

  • facilitate an approach to deliberately teach the skill of asking questions about observations, data, informational text, misconceptions and the ideas of others (including classmates)
  • actualize a strategy through which students will effectively make claims, support their claims with evidence, construct explanations and engage in argumentation
  • recognize how and why students should develop, evaluate, and revise their own models to optimize learning  in science and engineering

The workshop will be presented by Barbara Mammen, Educational Consultant, and former science teacher, district Supervisor of Science and Technology, and STEM Project Manager at Stevens Institute of Technology and Rider University.
