Developing a Unit with NGSS
Transcript of Developing a Unit with NGSS
Explain impact of factor
How does data support the proposed solution?
What are the limitations of your model?
Developing a Unit: Overview
(Always Task 1)
Connects the learning to socially significant ideas and content,
Will make meaning of the acquired content to other units
CCSS connection through literacy
How does this event connect to the PEs?
How is an AE different than an "Into" or a "Warm Up"?
Bundling the PEs /
Designing the Culminating Performance Task
Step 1) Bundling Performance Expectations
Step 2) CPT = Culminating Performance Task
This is where teacher planning starts (anchoring event is where the students start)
What do you want your students to know, understand, and be able to do by the
end of the unit?
Connection with real-world phenomena
TASK: Mitigating Human Impact
How does the environment affect an eagle population?

Task to perform
Step 3) Concept Mapping
Develops: Reflection, Big Ideas,Essential Questions
Dissect SE: SEP, DCI, CCC: Which ones are addressed? Which ones are missing?
Focuses instruction around the content, concepts and skills students will need to be successful on the PEs
Establishing a Sequence of Instruction
DOK through the Rigor Matrix
The eight steps outlined in your handout provide a framework for constructing units. These steps are essential for ensuring focused and thorough units of instruction.
Culminating Performance Task
Tuesday, June 3, 2014
Culminating Performance Task (CPT)
Charting it out...
Looking at the CPT, what are SKILLS, CONTENT, and CONCEPTS that are needed for success?
skills, content, and concepts onto separate sticky notes using the descriptors above to help guide you.
is an action that students can learn through training or experience. Through practice, skill fluency can be developed.
is disciplinary specific pieces of information to know.
is a broad understanding or theme that transcends disciplinary boundaries.
Let's breakdown this task...
Look at the PE
Did we hit all the performance
Why or why not?
Depth of Knowledge
Next Generation Science Standards
Where do these tasks fit into our sequence of instruction?
How do all the items build in DOK, skill, content, concept?
1. Bundling PEs
2. Design CPT
3. Concept Map
4. Develop Essential Questions
and Big Ideas
5. Identify content and
6. Establish a Sequence of Instruction
7. Summative/Post Assessment
8. Review and Refine
Beginning with the end-in-mind, tasks should be
centered on Webb's DOK
Too many acronyms
Common Core State Standards

Strategy to build performance tasks
Students will produce a written report to the EPA including: mathematical representations, explanations and model of chosen population in ecosystem, presentation of claims with evidence, presentation of solution to mitigate human impact, evaluate evidence supporting the proposed solution and its further impacts.
Students can choose from the following local populations: mountain lions, bears in Glendora, coyotes in Rancho Cucamonga, snakes in Etiwanda, or Bald eagles populations in San Bernardino Mountains.
Students may want to consider: Humans have caused ecological shifts in our native populations. How have these shifts changed the ecology of native species? How have these changes had an impact on human life? What suggestions could you make to mitigate these impacts to allow for greater species population?
