On-Demand Anne Rice - Transforming your classroom into a NextGen student-centered learning environment ›
Middle School teacher Anne Rice will share strategies and best practices on how to transition to a student-centered Next Gen classroom.
On-Demand Ken Miller - Science Denial. What causes it and what can Biology teachers do about it? ›
Vaccination, climate change, evolution, GMOs—denial of mainstream science seems to be everywhere, from pop culture to politics. Ken Miller, lead witness in the Kitzmiller “intelligent design” trial, will discuss what causes science denial and what science educators can do about it.
On-Demand Mike Padilla - Using Problem-Based Learning to Up Your NGSS Game ›
Human activity is the most powerful driver of change on Earth—affecting sea level, rainfall, seasonality, and ecosystem functions on which all life depends. Global change is complex, interdisciplinary—and perfect for NGSS-oriented teaching. We will explore the value of system models, relating global climate system structure to its function and underscoring the importance of time and scale in understanding stability and change in global systems.
On-Demand Carol Baker - Crafting the Middle Grades Science Sequence ›
What is the best way to implement the NGSS into your middle grade classroom? Join NGSS writing team member Carol Baker in an interactive session that examines the best way to orient your scope and sequence to fit the NGSS.
On-Demand Joe Levine - New and Emerging Infectious Diseases: Using Case Studies to Address Cross-Cutting Concepts and Disciplinary Core Ideas ›
Zika, Ebola, Bird flu, Lassa fever, and HIV seem to appear out of nowhere. Measles re-emerges to threaten children. Mysteries? Not really. Scientific narratives that fascinate students also demonstrate the value of ecological and evolutionary core ideas and cross-cutting concepts in medical practice, public health, and students’ lives.
On-Demand Joel Villegas - Creating Integrated STEM Learning Experiences ›
Joel Villegas brings his experience as a classroom teacher, professional development planner, and presenter to this engaging presentation where he will share a model for creating your own STEM lessons using existing curriculum.
On-Demand Using Pearson's Virtual Laboratories to Implement NGSS ›
You can perform any real lab virtually. Join professor Brian Woodfield as he demonstrates how to use Pearson Virtual Labs. Learn how to use inquiry-based lab simulations with no clean up, safety, or equipment issues. Virtual labs allow you to perform numerous experiments to teach Next Generation Science Standards. No goggles required!
On-Demand Using Problem-Based Learning to up your NGSS game ›
One of the biggest shifts involved with the implementation of the NGSS is the movement to incorporate more scenario-based and problem-based learning. To help prepare students for their next steps in school and beyond, students need to be doing science and seeing how it fits into their daily lives. Join Pearson author Mike Padilla as he brings Problem-Based learning into the science classroom to help prepare students for science and technology careers of the future.
On-Demand Welcome to the Anthropocene: Using global change to teach NGSS ›
Human activity has become the most powerful driver of global change. But what does that mean? Which human activities cause global change? How do those changes affect the biosphere and human society? This presentation addresses these questions, discusses using narrative to increase student understanding, explores the value of system models in understanding global change, relates the structure of the global climate system to its function, and underscores the importance of understanding time scale when evaluating stability and change in global processes.
On-Demand NGSS, STEM and PBL ›
Gain a conceptual understanding of the NGSS with application in the classroom with STEM implementation in the classroom as a solution to the shifts with NGSS. Examples will include Pearson’s Project STEM for grades K–8 that provides research-based materials that make it easy for teachers to integrate STEM seamlessly into existing curricula and instruction. Through 18 topics and accompanying program guides, Project STEM works with any elementary or middle grades science program. Each module follows the same format: Introduce, Teach, and Evaluate. Topics cover Life, Earth, and Physical sciences and illustrate how the four STEM areas are connected through hands-on labs, projects, and background materials.
