Integrating Science Learning and Computational Thinking with All Students Including English Learners
  • The education system is rapidly changing due to three emerging forces: traditional minority groups are now the majority with English learners as the fastest growing population; standards in STEM are academically rigorous; and technological innovations are advancing quickly. This presentation will address integration of science and computational thinking with all students including English learners. First, the presentation will briefly describe science (NGSS) instructional shifts. Second, it will describe how to integrate science learning and language learning with all students including English learners. Finally, it will describe how to integrate science with computational thinking and modeling.

NextGenTIME: A Suite of Tools for Evaluating Curriculum Materials and Designing Curriculum-Based Professional Learning; Part 1
  • This full day session examines NextGen TIME, which is both a Toolkit for Instructional Materials Evaluation and a process for Transforming Implementation through Materials Evaluation. It is a set of tools and processes which allows districts and educators to analyze and select materials based on specified criteria and scoring guidance and to provide educators with a transformative professional  learning experience highly focused on the NGSS and the implementation of high quality materials. This session will be facilitated by Jody Bintz, Associate Director for Strategic Partnerships & Professional Learning, BSCS.

Science Education for All: Instructional Shifts to Promote Science and Language Learning
  • A Framework for K-12 Science Education (National Research Council, 2012) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) offer a vision of rigorous standards across K-12 classrooms. As these standards offer both learning opportunities and demands, educators must enact instructional shifts to achieve the vision. This session highlights how science instructional shifts, based on the vision of the NGSS, and language instructional shifts, based on contemporary thinking in second language acquisition, are mutually supportive in promoting both science and language learning for all students. Using examples from science curriculum materials and classroom instruction, the session will highlight what educators can do to ensure all students are supported in learning science while developing language. The session will conclude with how science education is connected to English language arts and English language education.

Considerations for Implementing a Local Comprehensive Assessment System (LCAS)
As leaders in science education, we are often charged with developing assessment systems for our school or district. What makes up a local comprehensive assessment system? What structures and processes best support an effective system? How do classroom-embedded assessment tasks that involve students’ using “physical stuff” fit in?    This session provides resources and rationale to use as you introduce shifts in assessment called for by the NRC Framework, the NRC Developing Assessments for the Next Generation Science Standards, and the NGSS.

In addition to thinking about the system as a whole, you will engage in a classroom hands-on performance assessment task as you consider a variety of assessment strategies. Bring your expertise to share and learn from others what’s working in their districts.

Science and Language Instruction and Assessment With All Students Including English Learners
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are being implemented in the context of increasing student diversity in the nation. In particular, the NGSS present opportunities and demands for a rapidly growing population of English learners, who are learning science while developing proficiency in English. As science and language are integrally related and mutually supportive of each other, this session will address how to design science instruction that incorporates formative assessment of science and language with all students including English learners. After engaging in a science investigation, participants will assess student artifacts in terms of both science and language and consider how to use the assessment to inform instructional next steps.
