Supervising and Evaluating NGSS Instruction
Instructor: David Wells
Target Audience: K-12 Administrators
This course is designed around 6 online learning modules in EDU2.0 and a final project. Each module can be completed within a two week window of time and will contain assigned readings and/or videos, school-based practice with concepts, feedback from classmates on school-based practice through an online forum, and class forum discussions on concepts learned.
Participants will increase their overall understanding of the NGSS and how they are organized, as well as current trends in project-based learning. They will expand their knowledge of unit and lesson planning in relation to NGSS and observation tools such as Danielson's Framework and Marshall's Mini-Observation model.
Included with the price of this 3 graduate credit course (St. Michael's College) $415 - are these three books: Translating the NGSS for Classroom Instruction (2013 - Bybee), Rethinking Teacher Supervision and Evaluation: How to Work Smart, Build Collaboration, and Close the Achievement Gap (2013-Marshall) and Setting the Standard for Project Based Learning (2015 Larmer, Mergendoller and Boss).
