Next-Gen Science Exemplar System (NGSX) REGISTRATION
“NGSX changed the way I look at three-dimensional learning. I was always concerned with how we were communicating grade-level content, I never stopped to think if we were building knowledge so that students can expand their understanding for themselves.”
This best thing about this program is being able to work with other educators, build on each other’s strengths within the K-12 science teacher continuum. I would absolutely recommend this experience to all teachers, new and experienced because it demonstrates the practices of NGSS to teachers in the true pedagogy of constructivism having teachers learn as students. After taking this I was prepared to teach my new science units with the NGSS practices because of all of the resources shared with us.
The teachers in our study group report that NGSX is extremely valuable. They have gone back to their schools and bragged about it so that there is high demand for more study groups among teachers in our schools, now. The best part is, as a science coach, watching good science planning and instruction unfold in the classroom. It makes a difference to students! I see it first hand.
I hope all educators have the opportunity to participate in this training. It will impact their teaching across all content areas and the culture of their classrooms to best meet the needs of students. It truly capitalizes on 21st century skills.
