For districts that are adopting the NGSS, these professional learning sessions will focus on the 3 dimensional learning in the standards so that educators can learn how to integrate science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts.
On-line Professional Development
Little to Great Scientists® provides customizable, remote, and on-demand professional development opportunities for science teachers. Our goal is to enhance teachers understanding of scientific practices and engineering design principals, so they are better equipped to instruct students on Little to Great Scientists® Curriculum Units.
