The new Wisconsin Standards for Science, which are very similar to the NGSS, pose unique challenges at the high school level, though we also have an opportunity for improvement that may only come around every 14 years. In this session we will:

  • Dig into 3D high school level instruction and assessment, particularly considering challenges of “content coverage,”
  • Share experiences with connecting AP to the NGSS, particularly with the practices and crosscutting concepts,
  • Consider what college and career ready means in relation to HS science,
  • Connect to the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards and Aspire Performance Level Descriptors,
  • Share work on course sequences and equivalency with other subjects (like ag, food science, PLTW, etc.),
  • Discuss the minor differences between the WSS and NGSS.

A significant portion of the day will be dedicated to networking and sharing!

Presenter: Kevin Anderson, DPI
