Part 1--A Vision for K-12 Science Education

This presentation is a part of the NGSS webinar series hosted by the Kansas State Department of Education. If you revise it to use in for local professional learning, I would love to see the revisions.

Transcript of Part 1--A Vision for K-12 Science Education

Curriculum Instruction Assessment Teacher Development Why now? What's in the Framework? Science and Engineering Practices Disciplinary
Core
Ideas Crosscutting Concepts Vision NGSS Development Building on the past... preparing for the future Who is involved? How are these standards new? How can I get involved? Connections with Math and ELA Science, engineering and technology permeate modern life The workforce of the 21st century requires proficiency in science concepts and skills Understanding of science and engineering is critical to participation in public policy and good decision-making

2. Developing and using models
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
6. Constructing explanations and designing solutions
7. Engaging in argument from evidence

2. Cause and effect
3. Scale, proportion, and quantity
4. Systems and system models
5. Energy and matter
6. Structure and function
7. Stability and change What is a
"Disciplinary Core Idea?" Has broad importance across multiple science or engineering disciplines or is a key organizing concept of a single discipline Provides a key tool for understanding or investigating more complex ideas and solving problems Relates to the interests and life experiences of students or can be connected to societal or personal concerns that require scientific or technical knowledge Is teachable and learnable over multiple grades at increasing levels of depth and sophistication Physical Science PS4--Waves and their applications in technologies for information transfer Life Science PS1--Matter and its interactions PS2--Motion and stability:
Forces and interactions PS3--Energy LS1--From molecules to organisms:
Structures and processes LS2--Ecosystems: Interactions, energy, and dynamics LS3--Heredity: Inheritance and variation of traits LS4--Biological evolution:

Too often, standards are... throughout their lives. "Students should recognize that our current scientific understanding of the world is the result of hundreds of years of creative human endeavor." ...not just those who pursue higher education or careers in science, engineering, or technology. loooong lists of facts facts facts facts facts facts a m-i-l-e w-i-d-e Not only does this approach alienate young people and an inch deep. ...and little sense of the inherent logic and consistency of science ...it neglects the need for students to engage in doing science and engineering... kn o w l e d ge What our students get: By the end of the 12th grade, students should... ...have sufficient knowledge of science and engineering to engage in public discussions on science-related issues, to be critical consumers of scientific information related to their everyday lives, and to be able to continue to learn about science How do you know a good science teacher when you see one? Why are you one? What does it mean to be a science teacher?
