In this workshop you will engage in a thorough discussion of the Next Generation Science Standards to more fully understand implications for curriculum and instruction. Small group activities will focus on analyzing the standards for content, depth of knowledge, performance expectation, pedagogical approach, and assessment for an authentic classroom context. Products of the small group work will be reviewed and discussed. A limited number of scholarships may be available for this offering. To request consideration of a scholarship, please contact Mark Wiley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Scholarships are based on a "first come, first served" basis.
