Next Generation Science Standards Professional Development Update:

From the Science Steering Committee:

With the support of the new DE bureau chief, Erika Cook, the Science Steering Committee will be sharing the plan for NGSS implementation, including Module 1 of NGSS professional learning. This Module will focus on gaining amiliarity with three-dimensional learning that will be part of implementing the NGSS/Iowa Science Standards.

The purpose of these two days is to provide AEA Science Consultants and two (2) invited guests from each AEA the opportunity to experience and provide feedback on this first state-wide professional development resource related to the new NGSS science standards.

The Committee realizes that the timing is tight for identifying and inviting guests, but hopes each AEA will be able to bring two teacher leaders, science coaches, science supervisors and/or other science stakeholders from each AEA to the training.
