Primary and Upper Elementary Pathways

Elementary Pathways for TK-2 and 3-5 Educators Towards CA NGSS Implementation

Join the Primary (TK-2) Pathway or Upper Elementary (3-5) Pathway for the wonderful opportunity to learn how to plan and implement the CA NGSS for authentic phenomena-based 3-dimensional teaching and learning. Key to the success of CA NGSS implementation are strategies for language development and students’ sense-making. Primary Pathway is specifically designed to meet the needs and challenges of students in grade TK-2 and the Upper Elementary Pathway will focus on students in grades 3-5. Space is limited so apply now!

These compact and powerful six-hour professional development courses are specially designed for teachers of TK-2 and 3-5 to help them integrate CA NGSS, CCSS, and ELD standards into their daily curriculum. These courses will provide a thorough grounding in NGSS science instruction and fortify teachers with an understanding of the phenomena-based three-dimensional learning associated with CA NGSS as outlined in the new California Science Framework. The cost of participation for this event is conference registration fees + $40 to cover materials fees. Participants will also have access to 2017 California Science Education Conference events included with their registration. Additional costs may include related travel and lodging costs and meals. Capacity: 30 participants for each science pathway.
