Course: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

By July 27, 2016LAPSED events

These engaging hands-on, hybrid NGSS courses use a unique hybrid online/in person format designed to free up your summer schedule! Each course invites you to dive into a variety of Disciplinary Core Ideas through the lenses of the Crosscutting Concepts, while actively engaging with your peers in the NGSS Science Practices. Training in the ELPA21 Task Analysis Tool, which you can then use in your own practice to argue for the importance of science in the elementary classroom, is also included in each course.
