NSTA recently posted a series of videos of high school science teachers and students engaged in the type of science instruction outlines in the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards. The videos are connected with the FREE Interactions high school NGSS curriculum I mentioned in March. The videos could be useful for professional learning communities of science teachers, professional development workshops, administrators or anyone working to understand the key instructional shifts in NGSS.
Notice how the teachers in the video structure discourse and use strategies to allow students to construct and revise models and explanations over time.
