March 31, 2023  Developing and Using Models in the NGSS Classroom, Grades 5-12 

Time: 8:30-2:30  Cost: $175

Did your students’ scores on the NJSLA-Science stun you? Feeling a little
discouraged? Wish you had known the Science and Engineering Practices
(SEPs) were a major emphasis on the test? Then it’s time to attend
“Developing and Using Models in the NGSS Classroom, Grades 5-12”.
Find out more about the NJSLA-Science and learn more about the
modeling SEP.

There are 35 modeling SEPs embedded in the Performance Expectations
(PEs) for grades 5 through 12. This interactive six-hour workshop contains
three parts. Part 1 provides classroom-ready modeling activities and time
for creating/revising your own modeling activities. Part 2 is an overview of
the principles of the NGSS, the three Dimensions, and the PEs. Part 3
includes background information about the NJSLA-Science, test
construction, and scoring. Participants will receive resources in the form of handouts, activities, and websites.
