Phenomena Found in Agriculture
Free Live-Streamed Events
July 21 & 23
Join educators from across the nation in free live-streamed events which
explore agriculture as a real-world lens for science education
. These remote learning opportunities will bring field experts into a virtual classroom to explore anchoring phenomena based on their experiences. The events will offer valuable insight on how educators can help students draw connections across disciplines and grade levels through storylines related to the world of agriculture and food production.
These rich professional learning opportunities will help educators become better equipped to navigate the shifts in practice laid out by
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The sessions will offer an opportunity to collaboratively explore three dimensional learning, reflect on instructional shifts, and deepen understanding on phenomena routines.
"In my opinion, this is NGSS at its best – integrated, hands-on, fun, and relevant. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting our teachers piloting this unit, and they are doing amazing work with it. The lessons really make the students think deeply about the material, analyze their data and work, and revise their models regularly." Mark J. Madland, Secondary Science/STEM
