The Illinois Math and Science Academy in partnership with the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is pleased to provide Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) professional development for K-5 science teachers across the state of Illinois.
Phase 1-3: Teachers participated in a one day immersive experience engaging in model science lessons, the significant shifts with NGSS, and a deeper understanding of three dimensional teaching.
Phase 4: NGSS LEADERSHIP – A two-day workshop for teachers, teacher leaders, and administrators are focused on developing NGSS aligned lessons for your classroom, school, or district. In this K-5 NGSS leadership workshop, educators will:
- Learn to construct K-5 NGSS-aligned activities with an emphasis on data collection and analysis
