Innovations in science are happening at a rapid rate. Often driven by technology and human ingenuity, these advancements must be supported from the ground up in future working populations to sustain this growth. That's where the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) come in, since strong K-12 science standards can help to prepare students for careers within this discipline. Join us to learn about the inner workings of the NGSS and how to read them in a way that helps you to frame engaging science activities.
Have you ever experienced the following scenario? A science teacher gives his students a lab on the rock cycle. The students spend 20 minutes working through the lab, following each step closely. After the lab activity the teacher administers an exit ticket as an informal way of assessing understanding, only to see little to no improvement. If you're looking for strategies to increase content retention in the science classroom, join our session to learn some ways to revise traditional labs and increase inquiry thinking.
The Lunar New Year, also known as the Chinese New Year, is just around the corner, and it's the year of the Brown Dog! The Brown Dog symbolizes a strong and active Earth. If you don't have activities planned, don’t fret! This session will provide you with plenty of resources and ideas to bring the culture and science of the Lunar New Year to your classroom!
