PDI-11—One-Day Work Session: Moving the Next Generation Science Standards into the Classroom
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Salon E, Marriott Rivercenter Hotel
With the release of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), educators across the country are faced with the question of what NGSS might look like in the classroom. This session will be led by Rodger Bybee, the former Executive Director for Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) and NGSS life science writing team leader, and Kim Bess, Energy Education Coordinator at the San Diego County Office of Education. This session will feature examples of lessons designed to address both the letter and spirit of NGSS. Participants will leave with greater understanding of the standards as well as what may be required to implement them in classrooms.
