Description:  The NGSS represents the largest conceptual shift in teaching science in decades.  The addition of design and an increased emphasis on the practices of science could revolutionize science education.  However, this revolution will only occur if teachers understand the standards and make changes in their classrooms.  In this workshop, Paul Andersen will guide you through the standards while giving you concrete examples that can change science classrooms immediately.  Teachers will view, screen, and create exemplar performances assessments aligned to the new standards..  Most importantly teachers will learn science by doing science.
