This workshop will engage participants in developing an understanding of the new Wisconsin Science Standards and how they are connected to the Next Generation Science Standards. Participants will experience how to leverage the standards and accompanying supports to design and teach science. We will learn how to incorporate the science practices, cross-cutting concepts and content progressions while designing a lesson.

Key Goals:
Explore answers to the following questions:

  • Understand the relationship between the Wisconsin Science Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards
  • Learn how to use the standards documents for designing instruction
  • Learn what is needed to provide a conducive learning environment for students to successfully learn science concepts
  • Understand how to design assessment authentically to check for understanding
  • Think about the role of the student in assessment and explore methods to engage students in the learning process
  • Practice using the standards documents to design a lesson



CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
