NGSS Workshops For Middle School Teachers

Location: Raleigh Hills K-8, 5225 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Portland, OR 97225
Time: 8am – 4pm
Fee for each workshop: $100 for OSTA Members, $125 for Non-Members

These popular workshops are active, hands-on experiences designed for middle school science teachers who want to see what NGSS looks like in the classroom. Taught by instructors Susan Holveck and Berkeley Gadbaw; Berkeley is currently teaching middle school, and Susan guides teachers in NGSS implementation for grades K-12 in the Beaverton School District.

During these workshops, teachers will explore how lessons and units can be three-dimensional — including the three components of the NGSS: Crosscutting Concepts, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Scientific & Engineering Practices.

Teachers will conduct investigations and design solutions to problems that can be used in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. You will walk away with strategies and resources that can be used right away, and the tools that will help you to “Next-Genify” lessons you are currently using.
