S74: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): Science and Engineering Practices in the High School Classroom

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Unlike other standard documents that only stress the importance of knowledge, the NGSS also focuses on science and engineering practices to help students understand science.   Students who engage in these practices develop a deeper understanding of how scientific knowledge is developed and this helps make their knowledge more meaningful.  This symposium will focus on activities that effectively engage students in science and engineering practices, as well as provide teaching strategies for incorporating these practices into your tried and true lessons.

Presider: Annette Dobrzynski, Jenison High School
