This is your opportunity to hear first-hand from one of the primary authors and architects of A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas, the guiding document for the development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The first draft of the NGSS caused quite a stir in the science education community in California. Attend this session and learn about the research behind the Framework, the rationale behind the choices made, and learn about ways to start implementing Framework concepts in your classroom. The second public draft of the NGSS is expected out around the time of the conference, or just after. This session will help to inform and prepare you to participate in that second review process. Have a burning question you would like Dr. Quinn to address? Let us know, email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share your questions with Dr. Quinn. Your questions can help to shape her presentation, making this a truly valuable experience for you.
Dr. Quinn's presentation will be preceded by the CSTA annual meeting of membership.
