2017 Rendezvous NGSS Tagging Camp

July 16, 2017, Albuquerque, NM

Sunday, July 16, from 8:30am to 5:00pm
In association with the third annual Earth Educators' Rendezvous

Applications for this event have closed.

Participants selected for the new NGSS Tagging Camp will review and tag teaching materials developed through InTeGrate with disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, cross-cutting concepts, and performance expectations from the Next Generation Science Standards. This effort seeks to help educators find resources that are well-aligned with the NGSS to broaden their utility both at the undergraduate level in preparing future teachers and expanding their use to the high school classroom.

Applicants should be very familiar with the NGSS and the Framework for K-12 Science Education, particularly at the high school level. Participants may be high school science teachers, undergraduate faculty, informal educators, or others who are familiar with the NGSS and willing to become familiar with InTeGrate materials. Up to 15 participants will be selected from those who apply for this activity. For this important activity, InTeGrate will provide a $500 stipend that will help to offset your travel and accommodations. Stipends will be distributed 4 to 6 weeks after the conclusion of the Earth Educators' Rendezvous. You must be present for the entire camp to be eligible to receive a stipend.

Expectations

Prior to the camp, participants are expected to:

  • Participate in an introductory webinar in early- to mid-June;
  • Complete tagging for one InTeGrate module;
  • Review others tags for two InTeGrate modules.

During the camp, participants are expected to:

  • Refine their tagging based on feedback from others;
  • Complete tagging and reviews for 2-3 additional modules;
  • Help develop a list of criteria and best practices for tagging the modules with NGSS.

We expect that, on average, tagging all of the components of each module will take an hour, but this will vary.

Selection Criteria

Tagging camp participants will be selected:

  • Based on their familiarity and comfort level with the Next Generation Science Standards and the Framework for K-12 Science Education;
  • To develop a cohort with relevant experience that includes multiple educational perspectives and disciplinary backgrounds.
