Presentation: Using the NGSS to Change Worlds
Presenter: Matt Krehbiel, Achieve Director of Science
The NGSS (and similar standards based on the research of the Framework for K-12 Science Education) provide a unique opportunity for science educators to change their world and the worlds that their students perceive—and who's better positioned to change the world than Earth Science educators? Come talk about changing worlds and a few resources Achieve has developed in the past year as a part of our ongoing effort to support you in your efforts. Registration Deadline: September 10, 2019
When: Thursday, September 12, 2019, 5:00 PM Pacific | 6:00 PM Mountain | 7:00 PM Central | 8:00 PM Eastern
