NGSX Registration for Virtual Becoming a Next-Gen Science Teacher, July 26-28 plus July 31-August 2, 2023 -- via OAPL for MA
The course:

Virtual Becoming a Next-Gen Science Teacher (V-BNGST) is as collaborative and interactive as its in-person counterpart, Becoming a Next-Gen Science Teacher.  As in the in-person pathway, teachers are immersed in doing science as adult learners for portions of the session. Science materials are sent directly to participants.  

Virtual Becoming a Next-Gen Science Teacher prepares teachers to engage their students in the core science practices of modeling, argument, and explanation about puzzling phenomena in the world around them.  Participants learn how to build a classroom culture for robust sensemaking, student agency, and equitable participation. Through collaboration in doing science and exploring rich video cases, participants gain a variety of tools and resources to take back to their classrooms – to learn with and from their students. This course is highly interactive and collaborative, and it centers equity and agency for students and teachers.

The Virtual-Becoming a Next-Gen Science Teacher Pathway is an Approved Course for Accelerating Science: Open Access Professional Learning (OAPL). Any currently-employed MA public school educator whose work relates to science in grades preschool through 12 may take this course free of cost, with stipend provided. Visit DESE'S OAPL website to learn more.
Please read through each question or statement carefully. Eligibility for stipends and course completion is dependent on question responses.
