Session Goals
  • Analyze practices and identify distinguishing characteristics for each grade band.
  • Begin to develop a shared vision of the practices in action.
  • Analyze grade level specific activities to determine usability and make modifications needed to meet the vision of the NGSS.
a new vision of science learning that leads to a new vision of teaching
A New Vision of Science Learning that Leads to a New Vision of Teaching

The framework is designed to help realize a vision for education in the sciences and engineering in which students, over multiple years of school, actively engage in science and engineering practices and apply crosscutting concepts to deepen their understanding of the core ideas in these fields.

A Framework for K-12 Science Education p. 1-2

“…students cannot fully understand scientific and engineering ideas without engaging in the practices of inquiry and the discourses by which such ideas are developed and refined. At the same time, they cannot learn or show competence in practices except in the context of specific content.”

    • A Framework for K-12 Science Education, pg. 218

Standards: Nexus of 3 Dimensions
  • Not separate treatment of “content” and “inquiry” (No “Chapter 1”)
  • Curriculum and instruction needs to do more than present and assess scientific ideas – they need to involve learners in using scientific practices to develop and apply the scientific ideas.

Session Goals
  • Analyze practices and identify distinguishing characteristics for each grade band.
  • Begin to develop a shared vision of the practices in action.
  • Analyze grade level specific activities to determine usability and make modifications needed to meet the vision of the NGSS.

  • Number off 1 – 8
  • Read the Practice that corresponds to your number
  • Identify the key distinguishing features for each grade band for your practice.
  • Use the description summary frame to craft a 2 min. elevator speech that describes your Practice to share with your group.
  • What are some implications for selecting activities and materials to meet the vision of the NGSS?

Science and Engineering Practices

Guiding Principles

  • Students in K-12 should engage in all of the eight practices over each grade band.
  • Practices grow in complexity and sophistication across the grades.
  • Each practice may reflect science or engineering.
  • Practices represent what students are expected to do, and are not teaching methods or curriculum.
  • The eight practices are not separate; they intentionally overlap and interconnect.
  • Performance expectations focus on some but not all capabilities associated with a practice.

Session Goals
  • Analyze practices and identify distinguishing characteristics for each grade band.
  • Begin to develop a shared vision of the practices in action.
  • Analyze grade level specific activities to determine usability and make modifications needed to meet the vision of the NGSS.
video analysis
Video Analysis
  • Watch a video of a 5th grade classroom
  • Working individually, identify the practices being utilized by the students (including the grade band)
  • Jot down specific evidence to support your claim.
  • Share your thinking with a partner.
    • Were there any discrepancies between you?

Session Goals
  • Analyze practices and identify distinguishing characteristics for each grade band.
  • Begin to develop a shared vision of the practices in action.
  • Analyze grade level specific activities to determine usability and make modifications needed to meet the vision of the NGSS.
activity analysis
Activity Analysis
  • Work in grade level groups to examine the sample activities with respect the identified topic.
  • Use the “Translating Current Lessons” organizer to help you analyze the activity to determine if it meets the vision of the NGSS.
activity analysis1
Activity Analysis
  • Focus Question: Does the activity help students achieve the Performance Expectation?
  • Claim
  • Evidence/Justification
  • Next steps/Modifications
slide17

Any education that focuses predominantly on the detailed products of scientific labor – the facts of science – without developing an understanding of how those facts were established or that ignores the many important applications of science in the world misrepresents science and marginalizes the importance of engineering.
