6. Novel engineering PD

Program: Professional Development

Dates: 7/8/2019

NE Professional Development consists of three main strands. Engaging teachers in engineering by having them work through Novel Engineering activities - This allows teachers to experience engineering themselves and reflect on their own understandings of engineering and the engineering design process. Our main objective during these activities is to help develop teachers' disciplinary sense for what engineering is and how the approach can be implemented. Looking at video of students' engaged in Novel Engineering activities to understand what NE looks like in a classroom and to identify the beginning of engineering in an integrated activity - The second strand also focuses on developing teachers' disciplinary sense for engineering, but this time in the context of looking for beginnings of engineering in students' work. Planning Novel Engineering activities for the classroom - Lastly, our PD model supports teachers in planning their own activities, with explicit focus on anticipating how their students may respond. Asking teachers to anticipate while planning their lessons can focus attention back to the students. Furthermore, it allows teachers to check to see if the tasks allow for multiple design paths and solutions, giving room for student creativity. Some of the benefits of Novel Engineering: It is a highly adaptable approach that works within an already existing language arts curriculum where teachers choose books that work best in their classrooms It is an exciting and different way to practice literacy and students who struggle with language arts have a new way to demonstrate comprehension It enhances the comprehension of text as students try to find details to predict characters' choices. Students relate to the characters as they work to create solutions for them It provides synergistic integration of different disciplines It emphasizes problem solving, teamwork skills and other 21st Century Skills It meets common core and next generation science standards
