4. FUNDAMENTALS of the NEW YORK STATE SCIENCE LEARNING STANDARDS (NY version of NGSS)

Program: Professional Development Workshops

Dates: 11/20/2017

The Board of Regents approved The New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) to be implemented in all schools beginning July 1, 2017. This full day workshop will help participants become aware of the shifts in teaching and learning expected with the NYSSLS. Unlike our current Core Curriculum Guides and science assessments, they are a set of performance expectations that involve the three dimensions of Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts. Once fully implemented, this will be a paradigm shift to students constructing knowledge and doing science by pursuing engaging phenomena. The approach involves less memorization of science facts and procedures. Students must engage in the disciplinary content through using the science and engineering practices. It will help students develop 21st century skills including creativity, critical thinking skills, communication, and collaboration. This is an introductory workshop that will include activities so participants can experience the pedagogical shift and will focus on an awareness of the Standard’s content, the three dimensional nature, teaching approaches, as well as how to start preparing for their implementation. We will look to adapt what we currently do to a NYSSLS approach, view examples of how three dimensional learning can be assessed, and resources available. In addition, participants will gain the capacity to share their understanding of the NYSSLS with colleagues. Discussion will involve a brief review of the approved Statewide Strategic Plan for Science and the status of the implementation plan to support new P-12 science learning standards.
