In this archived webinar, an overview of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and key changes from previous standards is presented. Highlights include examples from K-12 classrooms implementing change in response to the NGSS, science preparation in the CSU system, and course requirements and content for the future. Incorporating engineering and literacy skills into the science classroom are some of the biggest concerns we have heard from K-12 teachers about NGSS, so the panelists focus on how to make the connections with engineering/literacy in CSU classes as potential examples for K-12. .
This webinar is aimed at a broad group of stakeholders in education—university faculty, district administrators, STEM coordinators, curriculum specialists, and instructional leaders—and was co-hosted by the CSU Chancellor's Office.
