your district Set aside 90-120 minutes Be prepared to pause video Links AGENDA What does it mean to Do Science? What are the science & engineering practices?
Are the science & engineering practices authentic? Identifying the Science & Engineering Practices in a Video Case Analyze the Science & Engineering Practices in a piece of Text Classroom Case: Science & Engineering Practices in the classroom Last Time o Children are born investigators o Focus on core ideas and practices
o Understanding develops over time o Science and engineering require both knowledge and practice o Connecting to students interests and experiences o Promoting equity Whats Different about NGSS? Integrating the 3 Dimensions
Science & Engineering Practices Disciplinary Core Ideas Crosscutting Concepts How do we do science? Take 3 minutes to answer the Doing

Optional Reading: Why focus on science and engineering practices and not inquiry? Why is the scientific method mistaken? Inquiry? the scientific method? Stemteachingtools.org Dimension 1: Science and Engineering Practices
1. Ask questions (for science) and define problems (for engineering) 2. Develop and use models 3. Plan and carry out investigations 4. Analyze and interpret data 5. Use mathematics and computational thinking 6. Construct explanations (for science) and design solutions (for engineering) 7. Engage in argument from evidence 8. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate
information Examining the Practices 1. Turn to p. 3 in your packet 2. With a partner- complete the column titled: What I Think this is Mostly About for each of the practices Jot down a key word or phrase for each practice
Video Case: Sea Star Wasting Syndrome As you watch the videojot down evidence of the Science & Engineering Practices on p. 3 1. Asking Questions (Science) & Defining Problems (Engineering) Video: What is killing the sea stars?
How might we help the sea stars? Other Notes: Engineers also ask questions Students should be asking questions during all 8 of the science & engineering practices 2. Developing and Using Models Video: Map, #sickstarfish Other Notes: Not just Physical ModelsDiagrams,
drawings, and mathematical representations are also models 3. Planning and Carrying Out Investigations Video: Observations of sea stars Infectiousness experiments Other Notes: May include elements from all of the other practices
More than just Experiments Field Studies and systematic observations are key 4. Analyzing and Interpreting Data Video: Making sense of experiments and observations Other Notes: Not just numbers Observations, pictures, drawings, etc
Use digital tools when possible and feasible 5. Using Math & Computational Thinking Video: Infer that lots of math and computational thinking is happening in background #sickstarfish Other Notes: Let students decide when to use qualitative vs quantitative data
Identify opportunities for students to use digital tools 6. Constructing Explanations (Science) & Designing Solutions (Engineering) Video: Lots of tentative claims This video shows constructing an explanation in action Other Notes:
Great connection with Common Core ELA: Evidence-Based explanations 7. Engaging in Argument from Evidence Video: Trying to identify cause of the syndrome Other Notes: Essential for identifying the best explanations and the best design solutions Argumentation happens during many of the
practices 8. Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information Video: Video is communicating with us Scientists and citizens obtaining and communicating together Other Notes: Real scientists and engineers spend over 50% of their time engaged in this practice
Identifying the Practices: Climate Science Article Read the article a to identify some of the 8 Science & Engineering Practices in the article. Label the text with the # of the practice
Identifying the Practices: Climate Science Article Which practices Jumped Out at you? 2- Developing & Using Models 4- Analyzing & Interpreting Data 5- Using Math & Computational Thinking 7- Argumentation
The Science & Engineering Practices in Action in a Classroom Grade: 3 Question: Do Very Tiny Things Have Weight? Background: Students conducted observations now they are making sense of their observations
Take Notes On p. 7 in your packet The Science & Engineering Practices in Action in a Classroom Which practices did we notice?
