session goals
Session Goals
  • Increase awareness of A Framework for K-12 Science Education and how this document connects to STEM education and informs the Next Generation Science Standards through a first-hand learning experience..
  • Plan next steps as related to the Framework and Next Generation Science Standards.
  • Reflect on your role in the adoption and implementation of Next Generation Science Standards.

Principles of A Framework for K-12 Science Education

•Children are born investigators

•Understanding builds over time

•Science and Engineering require both knowledge and practice

•Connecting to students’ interests and experiences is essential

•Instruction focuses on core ideas and practices

•Science learning standards promote equity

    • Adds 7 crosscutting concepts
      • Subsumes WA Systems and Application
findings
Findings
  • The vast majority of Washington science standards are fundamentally incorporated into the NGSS.
  • There is some movement of disciplinary core ideas between grades at the elementary level, but this realignment goes hand in hand with the goal of not getting ahead of the CCSS-M and CCSS-ELA standards.
  • In particular, the Systems, Inquiry and Application standards from Washington’s current standards are well-covered in the NGSS.
  • Modest differences exist between the Disciplinary Core Ideas in the NGSS and the Domain standards in Washington’s EALR 4.
    • Most of the difference involves re-sequencing and an emphasis on current scientific applications, but there is also a fundamental shift to a deeper focus on fewer topics, much like the CCSS.

OSPI Teaching and Learning Science

ngss the 3 shifts
NGSS – The 3 Shifts

Focus:

The NGSS are Focused on deeper understanding and application of science content reflecting real-world interconnectedness.

Coherence:

Science and engineering Build Coherently across K–12.

Integration:

Science and Engineering are Integrated across K–12 in the NGSS.

federal assessment requirements
Federal Assessment Requirements
  • No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requires that our state’s science standards must be assessed:
    • Once in elementary school (we give Measurements of Student Progress in 5th grade)
    • Once in middle school (we give MSP in 8th grade)
    • Once in high school (we give Biology End-of-Course exam)
  • When we change our state standards in science we need to change assessments

(RCW 28A.655.070).

  • Including:
  • School Districts
  • Higher Education
  • Non-formal education groups
  • Education and Educator Associations
  • Business Partners
paired verbal fluency
Paired Verbal Fluency

Find a person that you do not know:

  • Introduce yourselves. Decide who is A and who is B.
  • Person A listens to person B respond to the prompt until time is called (1 minute)
  • Person B listens to person A respond to the topic until time is called (1 minute)
  • Repeat the process as directed (30 seconds))

What would a learning experience be like that integrates engineering, science, technology, and math?
