Did your students’ scores on the NJSLA-Science stun you? Feeling a little discouraged? Wish you had known the Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) were a major emphasis on the test? Then it’s time to attend “Developing and Using Models in the NGSS Classroom, Grades 5-8”. Find out more about NJSLA-Science and learn more about the modeling SEP.
There are 20 modeling SEPs embedded in the Performance Expectations (PEs) for grades 5 through 8. This interactive six-hour workshop contains three parts. Part 1 provides classroom-ready modeling activities and time for creating/revising your own modeling activities. Part 2 is an overview of the principles of NGSS, the three Dimensions, and the PEs. Part 3 includes background information about the NJSLA-Science, test construction, and scoring. Participants will receive resources in the form of handouts, activities, and websites. This workshop is for teachers.
