Limited Capacity seats available

At a loss for how to incorporate Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core literacy standards into your science course? Modeling instruction has it all: defining problems, using models, planning and carrying out investigations, interpreting data, engaging in argument from evidence, and communicating information. Learn about this research-based, practical teaching strategy that engages students in scientific thinking, addresses common student misconceptions, and improves retention of fundamental science concepts. Teachers will experience modeling instruction in this session by participating in a sample high school science lesson. In the role of students, teachers will design an experiment, collect data, analyze data, develop a mathematical model, and present data to the class. The facilitator will provide online resources to go to for more information.
