Pitfalls Implementing Next Generation Science in the Classroom


Share with a colleague


Did you know that the new science standards come with a new vision of classroom inquiry instruction?

For the first time, a change in science standards represents a change in K-8 pedagogy. To successfully make the shift, you'll need to be aware of common challenges to classroom implementation.

In this free 45-minute session, we'll discuss how to:

  • Solve the problem of insufficient student supports in science.
  • Move away from focusing on summative assessment and the "right answers."
  • Help educators let go of unproductive student tasks & assignments.

Other key takeaways:

  • What's the next generation vision for K-8 science instruction, content, and skills?
  • What's the role of a next generation science teacher in the K-8 classroom?
  • How do inquiry process and culture merge in everyday science instruction?
  • Instruction doesn't change overnight, so what is a realistic rate of change in grades K-8?
  • Why won't teachers be able to make this switch alone?
