Webinar: Implementing NGSS in Earth Science--How to "NGSS-ify" the Question Formulation Technique: A Deep Dive

Presenter(s): Sarah Westbrook, The Right Question Institute, Nicole Bolduc, Ellington Public Schools
How do you design a NGSS unit (or modify an existing NGSS storyline) so that it starts with powerful, authentic student questions? What are best practices for helping students channel their wonderings into rigorous, relevant investigations? And, what do you do with the questions you can't answer? This webinar addresses these questions and more, as we take a deep dive into adapting the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) for the NGSS classroom. Register Here by: March 24, 2020.
