New Illinois Standards for Science (NGSS)

New Illinois Learning Standards for Science (NGSS)


Teachers attending these sessions will build capacity to transition to the new Illinois Standards for Science (NGSS). Teachers will be immersed into the standards as they experience them as a student. They will learn how to adapt what they currently do to meet the three dimensions of learning, how to effectively facilitate student discussions and small group learning, how to assess students, and how to write curriculum that engages students over longer periods of time.

How will participant’s learning be measured, or how will this change student learning?
Teachers will be able to put some strategies into place, Talk Moves, to help drive discussion with students immediately. Student engagement should increase as a result of using Talk Moves during discussions. Long term, teachers will be able to design highly engaging curriculum which increases student's depth of knowledge of scientific principles.
