Addressing Teacher & Leader Professional Development Pitfalls in the New Science Standards


Share with a colleague


Switching to the Next Generation Science Standards can be a transformative or ineffective experience.

This experience is determined by school leadership communication and expectations.

In this free 45-minute webinar, you will learn how to avoid these common leadership pitfalls in your implementation:

  • Underestimating the shifts in teacher practices required
  • Underestimating the need for ongoing professional development support
  • Failing to engage administrators in learning about what's involved in the new standards
  • Focusing exclusively on a few "one-size-fits-all" professional development meetings

We’ll discuss how to:

  • Create coherent and continuous opportunities for teacher learning.
  • Create time for active engagement and collaboration.
  • Connect to teacher's instructional practice.
  • Be an effective administrator when next generation science is all new to you.
