NGSS, Action, Application, and Personalization Virtual Workshop

Join us for NGSS Action, Application, and Personalization, the follow up workshop to our in-person or virtual NGSS Instructional Toolkit Trainings. This advanced professional learning opportunity takes a deeper dive and engages the participants with support to revise a current unit to include:

  • Student centered learning

  • Scaffolds to make thinking visible
