In this second part of the STEM Curriculum series, focused on the middle and high school classroom, we will explore the impact of the new Wisconsin State Science Standards on student learning.  Participants will work through elements of a lesson to strengthen their understanding of the new standards.  Additional topics in this session will include the Phenomenon, Questioning, and Modeling (PQM) Framework; Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning (CER) process; approaching lessons from an engineering perspective; and a process for unit mapping by creating a storyline.


Learning Outcomes will be:

  • Understand how the 3 dimensions of the WSS work together to create a holistic approach to science as a discipline.
  • Understand what a WSS/NGSS-based lesson looks like.
  • Understand how the WSS/NGSS shifts look in practice.
