This academy will familiarize administrators with ILS-Science (NGSS) and the major classroom shifts expected. It will provide them with a fundamental understanding to assess the current level of implementation of NGSS within their district/school and prepare an implementation plan. Participants will:

  • Become familiar with the terminology and design of NGSS documentation and develop an understanding of Performance Expectations, Cross Cutting Concepts, Science and Engineering Practices, and Disciplinary Core Ideas.
  • Be able to compare the description of an NGSS classroom to that of an effective classroom as described by ILS Math and ELA and the Danielson Framework.
  • Reflect on the challenges and successes they have encountered with implementation of ILS Math and ELA, brainstorm effective implementation of ILS-Sci (NGSS), and come up with possible solutions and supports for a variety of situations and stakeholders (including teachers).
  • Individually develop an action plan for implementing ILS-Science (NGSS).
