Archdiocese of Louisville Teachers Explore the Next Generation Science Standards

on June 24, 2016 in Teacher Training Workshops Comments Off on Archdiocese of Louisville Teachers Explore the Next Generation Science Standards

Had a great two days conducting Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for teachers of the Archdiocese of Louisville, Kentucky. The training was divided into two full-day sessions, grades 3-5 and a second day with grades 6-8. I was asked by the Diocese to focus on inquiry-based practices, and Science and Engineering Practices. I began the day with providing the participants with symbolic materials to represent the 3 dimensional aspects of the NGSS. Designing lessons that blend the three components of the NGSS (Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts). To introduce engineering design process and design thinking both groups were given engineering design challenges to undertake throughout the training. Participants conducted investigations to explore: materials science, force, motion, and energy, biodiversity, adaptations, and more. Teachers were also introduced to the use of reflective journals in the NGSS classroom. It was a pleasure working with all the dedicated and motivated teachers of the Archdiocese of Louisville as well as the education staff of the Diocese. The following photos were taken during the two days of training.

Had the pleasure of visiting Illinois last week to introduce K-6th grade teachers to the Next Generation Science Standards: NGSS. During the day-long session teachers were introduced to the six conceptual shifts in the NGSS, the components of the NGSS, 3 dimensional learning, inquiry-based teaching practices, 21st century skills, and the engineering design process.  Teachers were actively engaged in conducting inquiry-based investigations, communicating and collaborating with their peers, journaling and more. The NGSS requires a major paradigm shift in how we teach and think for both the teacher and student. Districts will need to provide quality, long-term sustainable professional staff development for K-12 teachers, as well as administrators in order for the learning goals of NGSS to be attained. For more information about the NGSS and STEM teacher training workshops I provide worldwide contact me via the contact page on this website. The following photos were taken during the NGSS teacher training workshop.
