Heather GalbreathLombardWhat can I change about my instruction to better meet the Next Generation Science Standards? This session will cover the many ways in which the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are very different from our traditional methods of science instruction. There are three dimensions to instructing and learning in NGSS that must be carefully blended together including: scientific practices, disciplinary core ideas and cross cutting concepts. This session will give science teachers a place to begin to make the transition into blending these three dimensions to best meet the Next Generation Science Standards. During this session there will also be some clarification of some commonly misinterpreted terms written in the NGSS, All gradesN/ASciencenoneClassroom (Standard)39
