Helping Students Make Sense of the World Using Next Generation Science and Engineering Practices
The book addresses three important questions:
- How will engaging students in science and engineering practices help improve science education?
- What do the eight practices look like in the classroom?
- How can educators engage students in practices to bring the NGSS to life?
Helping Students Make Sense of the World Using Next Generation Science and Engineering Practices was developed for K–12 science teachers, curriculum developers, teacher educators, and administrators. Many of its authors contributed to the Framework’s initial vision and tested their ideas in actual science classrooms. If you want a fresh game plan to help students work together to generate and revise knowledge—not just receive and repeat information—this book is for you.
