The Keys to Success in K-6 Next Generation Science Standards Implementation III: Learning Through Scientific and Engineering Practices

Recorded on March 13, 2015

Sponsored by the CSU Chancellor’s Office with support from CSU East Bay and WestEd. 

The scientific and engineering practices in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) focus on the central practices used by scientists and engineers. These include asking questions and defining problems, modeling, investigating, analyzing and interpreting data, using mathematics, developing explanations, engaging in augmentation, and evaluating information.

The presenters describe approaches for preparing current and future teachers to advance their students’ understanding of the NGSS scientific and engineering practices. They also talk about engaging experiences that directly involve students in using the practices.

Who Will Benefit

The series is aimed at a broad group of stakeholders in education—university faculty, district administrators, and STEM coordinators.
