The UO Real Solutions for NGSS Science Teaching subscription gives you access to all four modules at a significantly reduced price, plus a quarterly webinar. Modules are self-paced.
This module provides an introduction to the vision and goals of NGSS and how you can adjust your role as a teacher to align with them. You'll learn how NGSS is structured into three dimensions using performance expectations, with the ultimate aim of helping students develop a deep understanding of science and its connection to the real world, to their lives, to careers, and to other disciplines.
What does it mean to have students follow science and engineering practices? What do students as scientists do? What does it look like? How can engineering be integrated into science teaching? How is engineering represented in NGSS? This module discusses how crosscutting concepts can help students frame problems and ask questions as scientists and discusses how to design lessons to meet standards and pique students' curiosity.
NGSS is designed to build on continuing efforts for inclusion in science. In this module, you will explore how to design appropriate scope and sequence of science curriculum in K-12, and how all students benefit when you employ inclusive curricular design. You'll gain a wealth of resources to help you serve your students.
Enrich and expand your curricula by using project-based learning, creating strong math and English connections, engaging community partners, and collaborating with teachers of other disciplines. This is where education is moving!
