Barbara Hug will discuss the PAGES project’s approach to developing Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) aligned K-12 curriculum and professional development. She will discuss how to support in-service science teachers with the new standards through the use of NGSS storylines. She will share examples of science curricula and discuss the affordances and challenges of the approach.
Barbara Hug will be joining the group to present on Project NEURON (Novel Education for Understanding Research on Neuroscience).
A brief overview of the Next Generation Science Standards will be presented with possible implications for teaching and learning highlighted. We hope this introduction will spark a rich conversation about where science teaching at the K-12 level is headed.
Join us this week to learn about Barbara Hug's NIH-funded project to create neuroscience education resources for middle and high school teachers and students.
