"Key considerations for common science standards"
PVSTEMNET Executive Committee
Holyoke Community College
Kittredge Center Room 303
September 19, 2012, 4:00 PM
This talk will provide an overview of the development of Next
Generation Science Standards (NGSS), a set of standards being
developed by 26 states, and focus on several key considerations that
need your input as Massachusetts moves toward adoption of revised
science and technology/engineering standards. This session will
paint a picture of the intended vision of the NGSS in terms of
student outcomes, some of the shifts in expectations the standards
will embody, and the key aspects that need significant discussion
and consideration by Massachusetts science educators at all levels
to inform a decision about whether or not to adopt the standards.
Participant input and discussion is encouraged.
