NGSS Science Leader Program Learn to facilitate high quality professional development using the Next Generation Exemplar System (NGSX)
The Sacramento Area Science Project has an exciting leadership
opportunity this summer. Over the course of 10 workshop days you
will receive cutting edge leadership development for NGSS in the
form of facilitator training using the Next Generation Science
Exemplar System (NGSX). See http://www.ngsx.org/index.php/public/home for
more information about the PD system.
NGSX is a web-enabled, face-to-face PD system that allows groups
of teachers to explore and learn about the high leverage NGSS
practices of Modeling, Explanation and Argumentation and guides
them through a unit planning process. Our Science Leader Program
will take you through this PD system as a participant AND will
take you through a series of parallel facilitator training
modules. This will prepare you to take the NGSX system back to
your school system and, in coordination with SASP, you will be
equipped to run your own NGSX study groups at home.
Summer institute dates are June 27-30 and July 19-21 with an
additional 3 days TBD. You must be able to attend all dates in
June and July to participate. The TBD dates will be scheduled
based on participant availability.
