Next Generation Science Standards Symposium: Transition to Implementation Rollout #3 Training

Next Generation Science Standards Symposium: Transition to Implementation Rollout #3 Training


PLEASE CLICK ON "WHEN & WHERE" AND "AGENDA" TABS BEFORE REGISTERING.

Join science leaders at the third in a series of statewide professional learning symposia exploring the philosophy, design, awareness of and transition to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Registration fee is $250 per participant. Registration fee is payable via credit card ONLY. All fees must be paid prior to attending the two day symposium.  There are NO refunds for participant cancellations.  If a symposium is not sold-out, onsite registration and payment by credit card only will be available.


Reasonable Accommodation:
Pursuant to state and federal statues, individuals with a disability may request reasonable accommodation to attend or participate in the Next Generation Science Standards Symposium: Transition to Implementation Rollout #3 Training. Requests for Sign Language Interpreters should be directed to Amy Kennedy, Event Coordinator at least 30-days prior to the event. Contact information: Phone: (209) 468-9027; Email: akennedy@sjcoe.net.

Please limit your district teams to 4-6 people. This will allow for additional districts to participate as space is limited. Ideally, teams should include an Administrator or Curriculum Leader in addition to Teacher Leaders. These sessions build on NGSS Symposium II, so teams are encouraged to bring teachers who attended that event.

NGSS Statewide Rollout Phase 3

Session Title

Session Descriptors

Welcome Day 1

CA NGSS Assessment Update

The CDE will be sharing information on the development and progress of the new CA NGSS student assessments.

Environmental Principles & Concepts (EP&G)

Overview of how EP&C are integrated into NGSS

Tool P: Administrator Strand: Observing Implementation

 

 

The Administrator Strand is designed to provide PD aimed at the leadership work of administrators. The session includes an overview of the shifts of NGSS and then provides training on the use of two observational protocols designed to create awareness of supports needed for the implementation of the NGSS. Opportunities to utilize these protocols are embedded into the Roll Out as well as follow up session.

Tool E: Teacher Strand: Putting it Together

Building on Tool A, B, C, and D, Tool E helps teachers analyze their resources for alignment to the NGSS, and inclusion in a 5 E learning sequence.

Tool E to K-2 Learning Sequence

Apply Tool E to see how a teacher planned a learning sequence and then experience it as a learner.

Tool E to 3-5 Learning Sequence

Apply Tool E to see how a teacher planned a learning sequence and then experience it as a learner.

Tool E to 6-8 Learning Sequence

Apply Tool E to see how a teacher planned a learning sequence and then experience it as a learner.

Tool E to 9-12 Life Science Learning Sequence

Apply Tool E to see how a teacher planned a learning sequence and then experience it as a learner.

Tool E to 9-12 Physical Science Learning Sequence

Apply Tool E to see how a teacher planned a learning sequence and then experience it as a learner.

Welcome Back Day 2

Deepening Understanding of Modeling in the Elementary Classroom

 

Scientific modeling is an essential Science and Engineering Practice in NGSS. After experiencing an engaging science lesson, participants will learn how to use NGSS Evidence Statement to support the planning of three dimensional assessments and instruction.

Deepening Understanding of Modeling in the Secondary Classroom

 

Scientific modeling is an essential Science and Engineering Practice in NGSS. After experiencing an engaging science lesson, participants will learn how to use NGSS Evidence Statement to support the planning of three dimensional assessments and instruction.

Table Talks

Lunch opportunities to have follow-up conversations on topics of choice.

Admin Planning for Communication

 

The first session of the Administrator Strand is designed to provide a quick overview of the shifts needed for NGSS implementations, as well as, introduce two observation protocols aimed at helping to identify the support needed by administrators in implementing NGSS into their school/district. The session will provide opportunities to learn about and determine how the two protocols will be utilized by administrators during the Roll Out. The two observation protocols were designed by two initiatives charged with developing and disseminating processes to help California implement NGSS into the state school system.

Science and Common Core ELA

 

Experience the authentic use of CCSS ELA to obtain and communicate science understanding. The integration benefits learning in both disciplines.

Exploring Integration at Middle School

This session is designed for those who have selected, or are strongly leaning towards, the integrated progression for middle school. It will give you an opportunity of what it means to be integrated, and how to use phenomena and use models from the draft framework to think about integration.

High School Models

Review the policy issues related to the implementation of NGSS at the high school level. Explore and compare sample HS course sequences that might be appropriate for your district. Discuss strategies for leading school/district discussions with stakeholders about which model(s) are best for your context. This session is an updated version of the High School Sequence session offered at Rollout II taking into account assessment decisions and examining Achieve's Accelerated Model.

Cross Cutting Concepts:
Deepening Our Understanding

Experience the impact on thinking as different cross cutting concepts are used as a lens for understanding.

Engineering in Life Science

Think engineering is only appropriate in the Physical sciences? Come learn how engineering can drive engaged learning in life science and biology. Experience how an engineering and science sequence can be structured for learning in both.
