Next Generation Science Standards
This week, we have another vlog for you! If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards, have no fear, Yen is here to help! Transcript: Hi there! This is Yen, and my blog today is about how to teach the NGSS in three dimensions: Understanding the how, what, and why.
We’re changing things up with a video blog (Vlog) this week! But no worries, the transcript is below! Enjoy! Here is the transcript: Hi there! It’s Yen, from Qi Learning Research Group and the STEAM Café. I’m here to talk to you about the Next Generation Science Standards and how they’re different from the standards
There are three dimensions to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): The science and engineering practices (referred to as “practices” or SEP) The disciplinary core ideas (DCIs) The crosscutting concepts (CCCs). When it comes to the science and engineering practices, there are slight differences between the two that make a big impact on the way
Although the i5E model is typically used to teach science, the “I notice, I wonder” exercise can be incorporated into any subject to start an activity or to weave throughout an activity as a way to engage students and scaffold their interactions between the text and with each other. This technique works very effectively with
