    Workshop 1: USING CROSSCUTTING CONCEPTS TO MAKE SENSE OF PHENOMENA 

    Presenter: Peter McLaren - Next Gen Education, LLC

    The purpose of this workshop is to provide educators with meaningful insights into how to use the crosscutting concepts to structure prompts that engage students in reasoning how and why phenomena occur.  The intent is that using consistent and clear prompts structured around crosscutting concepts will structure the ways students and teachers interact within classrooms and set the stage for meaningful formative assessment events.  Thursday, December 14 from 4:30PM-6:30PM

    Workshop 2: ASSESSING 3-D LEARNING:  USING FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT TO INFORM STUDENT LEARNING IN A NGSS CLASSROOM    

    Presenter: Peter McLaren - Next Gen Education, LLC

    This full-day workshop is designed to provide educators with an understanding of formative assessment components and prompts that focus on individual practices, core ideas, or crosscutting concepts.  The goal of this workshop is to help educators understand how, collectively, these components can support educators as they make inferences about students’ three-dimensional science learning.

    Workshop 3: ASSESSING 3-D LEARNING:  USING FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT TO INFORM STUDENT LEARNING IN A NGSS CLASSROOM  

    Richard Larson - MIT

    Peter McLaren - Next Gen Education, LLC

     This half-day workshop will feature the successful MIT BLOSSOMS "Teaching Duet" instructional approach as a model for Teacher Professional Learning (TPL) of the instructional shifts of the NGSS.  TPL is designed to engage educators by immersing them in a phenomenon-driven, three-dimensional lesson to support, prepare, reflect upon, and improve upon their instructional practice.

    Workshop 4: THREE-DIMENSIONAL LESSONS:  ADAPTING A TRADITIONAL LESSON TO SUPPORT THREE-DIMENSIONAL TEACHING AND LEARNING   

    Presenter: Peter McLaren - Next Gen Education, LLC

    This full-day workshop will bring educators through a process where they will adapt a traditional lesson to support three-dimensional instruction.  Educators will bring along a lesson to which they are familiar and learn how to integrate science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts.  Educators will use tools and templates designed to help facilitate the adaptation process.
