From Standard to Inquiry Unit

From Standard to Inquiry Unit

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are written such that each performance expectation concisely describes how students are to demonstrate their learning. These statements contain lots of information regarding the skills and content knowledge students need in order to be successful in meeting each expectation. This workshop will provide teachers with useful strategies for deconstructing (unpacking) the performance expectations and using unpacked elements to create a sequence of lessons as part of a larger inquiry unit. Participants will engage in several hands-on activities, discussions, and collaboratively create a unit outline based on specific CCSS and/or NGSS performance expectations.
