    This 4 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 Berkeley Gadbaw and Melody Childers. Berkeley is currently teaching middle school and has been implementing the lessons and activities that you will learn in her classroom. Melody is a science teacher who has attended the workshop and implemented many of the lessons and practices with a group of diverse students at the Health and Science School in Beaverton.

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

    Here is a link to the course flyer for you to share with  your colleagues and administrators.
