#NSTA22 – Scaffolding students’ progression through CCCs and SEPs using resources from the OpenSciEd toolkit

July 21 @ 4:25 pm - 5:25 pm PDT

See how tools developed within OpenSciEd units can support students’ progression of and engagement in SEPs and CCCs across a variety of unit contexts.

Teachers need open source, high-quality instructional materials to support the teaching/learning shifts in the Next Generation Science Standards, and tools that support bringing these shifts into their own practice. Explore how OpenSciEd supports student progression in the Science and Engineering Practices and Crosscutting Concepts with practical tools designed to support the development and use of different aspects of the Next Generation Science Standards. Participants will specifically explore tools and strategies for supporting the Crosscutting Concept of Cause and Effect and the Science and Engineering Practice of Developing and Using Models that were developed within several OpenSciEd middle school units. Additionally, participants will see how resources from the OpenSciEd Teacher Tools and Resources collection such as graphic organizers, templates, data analysis strategies, general rubrics, engaging in productive classroom discussions, and self- and peer-assessments can be used in other contexts, as well. Teachers will walk away with ideas and resources to modify units or provide additional scaffolds for your students.
