NGSS: Phenomena & CER, Grades 5-12
May 3 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm$150.00
Are you looking for ways to engage your students in activities that support collaboration and argumentation? This interactive workshop begins with a review of the foundation of the standards: the principles of NGSS, the three Dimensions, and the Performance Expectations. Participants then learn how to use phenomena as a starting point for their lessons. Finally, participants examine CER (Claims-Evidence-Reasoning), a process for writing and speaking about science. This involves collaboratively discussing useful instructional and assessment strategies and practicing the process that guides students in making claims, supporting claims with evidence, and constructing scientific arguments. Participants will receive many resources in the form of lessons, handouts, classroom-ready activities, and websites.
