Episode 83 | Professional Development, the NGSS, and Kindergarten

n May 2018 FPU will graduate the first group of Master’s degree students, who have been scholar-shipped by AIMS in the present manner. During the Summer of 2018 we will be hearing from some of them on ZPC.

Jaclyn Russell joins Chris in the studio to discuss her thesis topic in which she sought to understand the relationship between teachers experience with professional learning around the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and how much time is spent in teaching scientific concepts to our earliest of learners, kindergartners. She also created a piece of professional learning for a group of teachers which included a simple daily format for teachers to provide lessons that incorporate science and scientific processes to these children.
