Transitioning to "NGSS Phase 2" Units

  • Teacher Leaders and Master Trainers implemented NGSS Phase 2 units in their classrooms during the 2018-19 school year.

    Master Trainers and Apprentice Trainers collaborated to design training content for Science Co-op teachers.

    Six hour unit trainings will be facilitated by Science Co-op Master Trainers assisted by Apprentice Trainers.

    Training for these new units will be offered in August 2019 and through out the 2019-20 school year.

    Some training will be delivered in Districts to leverage Professional Development days.
