Your help could further MMSA’s vision of a brighter STEM future for the State of Maine and the nation. Today, I ask you to support MMSA and become a part of the movement to support exciting new ways for our youth to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math.
The Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance is pleased to bring the Next Generation Science Exemplar (NGSX) program to Maine educators once again this fall. This time we’re inviting principals, assistant principals, curriculum coordinators, and instructional coaches to attend this 1.5 day workshop aimed at deepening participants’ understanding of the pedagogical shifts described in the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards. The shifts motivated by the National Research Council’s Framework and NGSS are substantial. Yet we know that these shifts are possible for teachers to develop and are productive for student learning when they are supported through the right pedagogy and classroom culture.
This workshop brings the expertise of Framework developers, experts in teacher learning, and expert professional development facilitators to Maine educators. This workshop is for instructional leaders interested in knowing more about and figuring out constructive strategies for supporting teachers and students as they make shifts in their science teaching and learning.
Space is limited to 20 participants.
Workshop is for K-12 principals, assistant principals, curriculum coordinators, instructional coaches
