NGSS and the Outdoor Classroom
Date: Friday, November 14, 2014 8:30a-2:30p
Grade 5-8
Outdoor environments can provide unique opportunities for implementing lessons that align with the Next Generation Science Standards.  Using outdoor sites similar to those found on most schoolyards or community parks, this session will model lessons and cross-cutting concepts that focus on NGSS Topics and Disciplinary Core Ideas in the domains of ‘Earth Systems’ and ‘Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems’.  Inquiry-based learning strategies will be demonstrated and connections to Common Core State Standards will be addressed.  Participants should dress in accordance with predicted weather conditions.

 

Matter and Magnetism
Date: Friday, December 5, 2014, 8:30a-2:30p
Grades: 3-6
NJ has adopted the NGSS! And even though they are not going to be implemented for another two years, there are steps that can be taken now to make the transition easier and smoother.     In this workshop teachers will be introduced to the NGSS Framework, so important to better understand them.  They will be engaged in activities where they can integrate NGSS practices with physical science. These easy to set up activities are student centered and will allow for them to engage in asking questions while developing and using models and carrying out investigations.
