From Engagement to Assessment: Bringing the NGSS to Life

In this session, you will explore how issues of place and culture can bring the NGSS to life for students through projects. We will explore topic and lesson design and then consider the following question: Once you’ve engaged students with compelling science lessons, how do you assess their learning? To answer this question, you will explore a variety of assessment strategies that engage and expand on student experience. An emphasis will be placed on engaging BIPOC students in urban environments.
