Next Generation Science Standards - Two Topics Together!


In this workshop participants will have the chance to explore two exciting Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) topics together.

Topic 1: Writing High-Quality, Teacher-Constructed Assessments to Evaluate Student Learning in Science
Classroom-based assessments that frequently measure learning objectives, provide timely and targeted feedback for students, and inform instruction should occur every day in the science classroom.  Some assessments used in the classroom are developed by educational publishers, but most are teacher-constructed.  The essential question is: Are you assessment literate?   In other words, do you create assessments with validity, reliability and bias in mind, know the dos and don’ts for writing high-quality assessment items, and evaluate your own assessments by conducting item analyses?  Educators attending this engaging and informative workshop will:

  • recognize assessment that is categorized “of, as or for” learning
  • select appropriate assessment approaches (e.g., formative assessments, summative reviews, self-assessments, etc.) based on student learning objectives, diverse needs of students, and instructional situation
  • create meaningful and specific rubrics that facilitate student learning
  • provide appropriate and descriptive feedback to students

Topic 2: Take Your NGSS Implementation to a Higher Level with Web Resources
Time is a precious commodity for educators.  Little time exists during the busy school day or at home to spend hours online searching for teaching and learning resources.  This workshop provides that time!  During the second segment of this workshop educators will:

  • explore the best web sites for STEM lesson plans, activities, projects and videos
  • select resources that are grade-level and student population appropriate
  • share ideas for planning, integrating and implementing

The workshop will be presented by Barbara Mammen, Educational Consultant, and former science teacher, district Supervisor of Science and Technology, and STEM Project Manager at Stevens Institute of Technology and Rider University.
