The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) have introduced multiple new demands on science teachers. NGSS-aligned science lessons ask teachers to engage students in rigorous and authentic scientific problem-solving and sense-making. We believe that helping science teachers support motivation and engagement will help them achieve the aims of NGSS and foster robust and meaningful science learning in their students.
M-PLANS is currently working with middle school science teachers in Nevada and Michigan to design and develop a teacher professional learning (PL) experience that supports science teachers in creating a more motivating and engaging experience for students in their classrooms. The project is seeking additional science teachers to join in this work for the 2021-2022 school year.
