Description

When it’s time for a game change, you need a guide to the
new rules. Helping Students Make Sense of
the World Using Next Generation Science and Engineering Practices
provides
a play-by-play understanding of the practices strand of A Framework for K–12 Science Education (Framework) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Written in clear, nontechnical language, this book provides a wealth of
real-world examples to show you what’s different about practice-centred
teaching and learning at all year levels. The book addresses three important questions:



  1. How will engaging students in science and engineering practices
    help improve science education?

  2. What do the eight practices look like in the classroom?

  3. How can educators engage students in practices to bring the NGSS
    to life?


Helping Students Make Sense of
the World Using Next Generation Science and Engineering Practices
was developed for F–12 science
teachers, curriculum developers, teacher educators and administrators. Many of
its authors are researchers who contributed to the Framework’s initial vision and teachers who are leaders in
implementing these ideas in their own science classrooms. If you want a fresh game
plan to help students work together to generate and revise knowledge – not just
receive and repeat information – this book is for you.
