Two new NGSS Resources for Instruction
In the latest newsletter from Achieve, I came across two new resources that support NGSS instruction and learning for ALL students.
The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) has released Using Crosscutting Concepts to Prompt Student Responses to guide teachers in using Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs) as a way to monitor student sense-making of phenomena. This resource discusses three-dimensional assessments and how to use CCCs to engage students and develop prompts for formative assessments.
How to Build an Equitable Learning Community in Your Science Classroom, developed by STEM Teaching Tools, describes a range of classroom activities designed to build equitable learning opportunities for ALL students.
