New Oregon Science Standards Webpage and Resources!

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) created a new Oregon 2014 Science Standards webpage to support transition to implementation of the new science standards. On this page you will find the crosswalks for each grade level and for high school that detail the alignment between the Oregon 2014 Science Standards (NGSS) and the Oregon 2009 Science Standards. In addition, at the bottom of the webpage there are links to NGSS resources. ODE will add more resources as they become available.

We are planning a two day conference to accommodate our colleagues whose districts no longer honor the State-Wide Inservice day, or need that day to travel to the Portland Metro Area.

Our goal is to provide you with the quality professional development you need to stay informed of the conceptual shifts in science education that the NGSS present, and to polish your craft. 

Got a good lesson, idea or activity to share? Submit a session proposal. Know someone else who does? Encourage them to submit a proposal. For details about the conference and to submit a proposal click here!

Deadline for submissions is April 30, 2014
