Fantastic Phenomena-based Learning with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
Course #
Graduate Credits
Grade Level
Phenomena are events that occur in our world, like volcanic lightning or tsunamis. They create the perfect context for students to explore and learn science concepts, but how exactly do you go about designing phenomena-based lessons? The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) can help! This course breaks down the concept of phenomena-based learning to empower the depths of your and your students’ curiosity. You’ll go through the process of selecting an “anchor” phenomena, develop a way to “solve” a phenomena through Science and Engineering Design, and learn about how storylines can help with planning. Finally, you’ll bring your learning together to share with your colleagues, and create a phenomena-based lesson. This course will demystify phenomena’s role in NGSS, and provide a foundation to bring back wonder to the science classroom.
