This workshop focuses on three-dimensional (3D) learning through intertwining the disciplinary core ideas of modern biology with the scientific and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts as described in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Teachers will experience the Patterns Approach of using inquiry experiments as a mode to learn content as well as how to integrate engineering and student-centered learning experiences into their instruction. Teachers will also learn how to structure their inquiry and engineering investigations with multiple designs to foster scientific discourse between students during the analysis of data. Resources and unit plans with a scope and sequence that address the NGSS high school life science discipline will be shared.
4 Professional Development Units to be provided upon completion.
