Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - Science

MakerSpace: Zone for Critical and Creative Thinking Description: Making is creative, innovative, inventive, collaborative, resourceful and empowering. The maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing. It encourages a deep engagement with content, critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration while sparking curiosity. According to Thomas Kalil, deputy director of the White House's office of Science and Technology Policy, the Maker movement really "begins with the Makers themselves - who find making, tinkering, inventing, problem-solving, discovering and sharing intrinsically rewarding." Emphasis will be on designing your own MakerSpace. Participants (Makers) will explore and learn through engaging in hands on experiences and Q&A with leading experts. Date: Oct. 20, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am – 3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Teachers and School Library Media Specialists Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $239 per participant Presenters: Mary Elizabeth Wilson, Ed.D. and Pam Berger Contact: Janet Jamal 914-345-8500, ext. 3122 jjamal@swboces.org What’s New in Science? Description: The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are out! Twenty-six states and their broad-based teams worked together with a 41-member writing team and partners throughout the country to develop the standards. Join us for a day of science as we explore the Disciplinary Core Idea (DCI) Arrangements and make sense of what these standards mean for everyday instruction. Emphasis on the sharing of open source materials, tools and processes designed and chosen to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the NGSS to inform your daily planning. Opportunities to rethink and adapt existing curriculum and assessments (formative and performance based) aligned to the expectations of the NGSS.
