ED 5620 - Next Generation Science Standards and STEAM Education: Integrating both into our Classrooms

During this course we will explore the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards and connect these to the ideas of STEAM educational goals. NGSS can be incorporated in a number of ways and often times woven into our existing curriculum.   We will discuss the Disciplinary Core Ideas throughout NGSS and develop ways to increase our students’ awareness and ability to be analytical when developing questions. We will review the goals of the NGSS, understand the layout and organization of the standards, and connect this framework to best practices used to increase student curiosity around the ideas of STEAM education. Participants will align parts of their current content to the NGSS and prepare activities and performance based assessments for their classrooms. We will analyze the work of our peers and share content and resources throughout the course. (3 Credits) Meets MED & CAGS concentration requirement: Curriculum and Instruction/ STEM
