Next Generation Science Standards

NGSS

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
  • Identify the gaps in your current science curriculum
  • Create lessons in collaboration with IMSA specialists & colleagues
  • Participants will receive classroom supplies and tools to share their learning with others
