Making Sense of NGSS (First in a Series)Thursday, May 7, 2015 4:30:00 PM EDT - 5:15:00 PM EDT
Please join us for this first in a series of free webinars for Maine educators. Let's make sense of the Next Generation Science Standards. We'll begin with the basics and explore how they were developed and why they are needed. Revisit or be introduced to A Framework for K-12 Science Education, the book that guided the development of NGSS. Also featured will be PBS LearningMedia science digital resources that support the new standards. This event is a collaboration between MPBN, PBS LearningMedia, Maine Science Teachers Association and WGBH Education. We'll send out the archived recording link to all who register. And, everyone who registers will be eligible to win our raffle prize, a canvas PBS LearningMedia bag and NOVA classroom dvds. Thank you!
