NGSS – Two Topics Together!


In this workshop participants will have the chance to explore two exciting Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) topics together.

Topic One: Science and Engineering: Perfect Together!
The NGSS has catapulted engineering education to a prominent place in all classrooms where science is taught.  What should engineering look and sound like in a classroom setting?   During  the first segment of this interactive and engaging workshop educators will:

  • solve several engineering design challenges as part of a team
  • understand and be able to facilitate students’ understanding of the iterative nature of engineering
  • ensure that students recognize the conceptual connections between science and engineering.
  • visit web resources to locate grade/student appropriate engineering design challenges

Topic Two:  Science, Engineering and ELA: Even Better Together!
ELA literacy capacities (reading, writing, language, speaking and listening, media and tech) can support and enhance how students process and make sense of science and engineering concepts.  During the second segment of this workshop educators will:

  • acquire a repertoire of literacy-based activities such as: Word Splashes, Sort Cards, Relay Summaries, The Last Word, Walking Tours, Paired Verbal Fluency, meta-cognitive conversation/writing, and news/article critiques.
  • recognize ways to  implement and modify the activities for diverse learners

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.
