    This series of workshops is for K-8 rural district teachers without adopted curriculum who need support with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Project Based Learning (PBL).


    Teachers will be provided with:

    • Introduction to Next Generation Science Standards and Project-Based Learning
    • Content in Context Super Lesson (C2SL) Model Lessons
    • Preparation for 2019 Oregon science assessments

    Teachers in this workshop will be expected to implement one of the Content in Context SuperLessons with classroom support.

    This is a great opportunity for your professional development as the benefits include:

    • Free NGSS Units and Kits available for check out.
    • $250 stipend, provided upon completion of an implementation plan and participation in the STEAM Showcase on June 9, 2018.
    • 12 PDUs

    Elementary, Middle and High School educators are invited to join us to connect with colleagues and learn about resources available through the Oregon Science Teachers Association.

    Ready-to-go STEM project-based learning units with kit-based materials will be featured.

    Plank Town is offering a tour of the brew room for teachers to see the brewing process in action beginning at 4:30pm, and will be providing a 10% discount on all food and drink purchases.

    This 5 day workshop is an active, hands-on experience designed for middle school science teachers who want to see what NGSS looks like in the classroom and to learn about the instructional shifts that are needed for the implementation of NGSS. Teachers will explore how lessons and units in earth, life and physical sciences can be three-dimensional — including the three components of the NGSS: Crosscutting Concepts, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Scientific & Engineering Practices.

    Teachers will actively conduct investigations and design engineering solutions to problems in science that can be used in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. You will walk away with strategies and resources that can be used right away, and the tools that will help you to "Next-Genify" lessons you are currently using. NGSS 3-D assessment, student discourse, and anchoring phenomenon that drive instruction will be featured. Many resources will be provided as well as ready to use lessons.

    This course is taught by instructors Susan Holveck and Berkeley Gadbaw. Berkeley is currently teaching middle school and has been implementing the lessons and activities that you will learn in her classroom. Susan guides teachers in NGSS implementation for grades K-12 in the Beaverton School District.

    32 Professional Development Units will be provided for completing this set of workshops.
