About Thinking about NGSS: Introducing the Practices

Looking for ways to begin to align your instruction with the NGSS? Learn ways to incorporate science and engineering practices into your instruction. Participants will experience and examine a series of science and engineering activities as a starting point for integrating the NGSS. Extension Educators will help you update and revise your curriculum so that it begins to address core disciplinary ideas, crosscutting concepts and scientific practices. Sessions and activities can be tailored to desired grade levels and ambitions; choose science and/or engineering concepts as the focus of the session.

About the Enrichment Workshops for Teachers offered by University of Illinois Cook County Extension.

Extension educators are providing a wide variety of professional development programs that focus on animal science, biology, chemistry, engineering, math, and social and emotional learning. These workshops can be offered at your location during the school year or summer and can be adjusted to fit the needs of your teachers.

In addition several of the math workshops will be offered this fall in the Westchester office.
Teachers will receive PDH credits for each workshop.

Visit the Enrichment Workshops for Teachers webpage for a full listing of workshops offered.
