Experience how high-leverage instructional practices benefit learners as you engage with anchoring phenomena and teaching routines that support student sense-making using distance learning applications. Collaboratively construct an anchoring phenomena that is tailored to your students and incorporates VEEP curricula and/or equipment.The NGSS Instructional Toolkit Workshop is a professional development program for high school teachers that integrates energy literacy, and the three-dimensional learning of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
