Science and Engineering Practices: Professional Book Study for Elementary School Teachers

Virtual Conference

Are you an elementary school teacher working to enhance your knowledge and understanding of the Science and Engineering Practices from A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)? Register to participate in the Science and Engineering Practices: Professional Book Study, taking place in May-June, 2019!

NSTA has developed an Online Book Study around the book Helping Students Make Sense of the World Using Next Generation Science and Engineering Practices. This book provides a play-by-play understanding of the practices, written in clear, nontechnical language. Through a wealth of real-world examples you will discover what’s different about three-dimensional teaching and learning at all grade levels.

During the online book study, elementary school teachers attend live web seminars and participate in asynchronous discussions with the presenters, Ted Willard and Tricia Shelton. The web seminars support use of the book to deepen participant understanding of the science and engineering practices. Presenters also share examples and stories from the classroom to illustrate HOW this understanding can be translated into classroom teaching and learning.
