An Introduction to the Next Generation Science Standards

Last Date:


In 2013, the DC State Board of Education adopted The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Together with the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts, the NGSS hold the promise of transforming STEM education and preparing all DC students to succeed, in education, work, and their daily lives. OSSE invites to this NGSS introductory webinar educators new to the District or those who are new to supporting science instruction. During this hour, we will discuss instructional shifts and innovations in classroom learning specific to science standards and engineering practices. Participants will also explore the dimensions of learning along with tools and resources to further explore the NGSS. Participation in this webinar is highly recommended prior to attending the “The Inclusive Science Classroom: Supporting All Learners.”
