What does DCI stand for?
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
25:28
This webinar ties together many ideas that we've discussed in previous webinars. You will get a follow up email that includes links to all previous webinars, which you can go back and watch when you can!
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
25:45
@Wayne: Disciplinary Core Idea (DCI): The most essential ideas in the major science disciplines that all students should understand during 13 years of school - traditionally just called “content”
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
26:11
Learning Progression (LP): Descriptions of the successively more sophisticated ways of thinking about a topic that can follow one another as children learn about and investigate a topic over a broad span of time (captured in the Framework by use of grade bands).

My unit on the Solar System and particular have them makes models of the moon phases with Oreo cookies. My diverse learners.
Lisa
36:01
Coherence is making sure students understand, so they have a foundation to continue to learn.
Kathy
36:03
Love that solar system idea!!
Nicole
36:05
It also reminds me of building steps. Each piece has a foundation in the bottom ones.
Kendra
36:08
I think when the concepts are scaffolded like a story and students can see how they are connected.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
36:09
These are great examples! Activities are simply that unless we link them to bigger ideas.
Adriana
36:10
I think Conceptual Coherence of these key ideas serves as a stepping stone that that need to know for the next grade level.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)

Activity-mania! We need to make sure that our activities are engaging, but that there is also time for students to make sense of the activities and how they relate to the larger conceptual goal.
Jenny
40:31
connection is lost?
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
40:31
Phenomena: Observable events that students can use the three dimensions of NGSS to explain or make sense of. Phenomena can help provide coherency for a unit and provide motivation for investigations that develop conceptual understanding.
Jerome Patoux (MSI)
40:36
Science and Engineering Practice (SEP): What students DO to make sense of phenomena. They are both a set of skills and a set of knowledge to be internalized. The SEPs reflect the major practices that scientists and engineers use.
Jerome Patoux (MSI)
40:52
Crosscutting Concept (CCC): These are concepts that hold true across the natural and engineered world. Students can use them to make connections across seemingly disparate disciplines or situations, connect new learning to prior experiences, and more deeply engage with material across the other dimensions.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
41:02
IQST TEAM - people are mentioning a lost connection, but it's fine on my end. Are you seeing anything?
Jerome Patoux (MSI)
41:19
Fine.
Patricia Messersmith (MSI)
41:32
No, the connection seems fine!
Will Henry (MSI)
41:37
Fine here.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)

@Jason and @Jenny: We are not seeing any connection issues on our end, but the webinar is being recorded, so you can always go back and check in on anything you might have missed!
Will Henry (MSI)

wayne
44:21
Do you tell students the term engineer or is their an word to refer. Some of my students are scared of the engineer because of low academics.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
44:27
It's definitely very exciting stuff!
Missy
44:57
My mind is exploding. This is so amazing
Gemma
45:19
I love the idea of tridimensional lessons
Kendra
45:23
This matrix is really helpful in making sure you are helping students reach the progression goals according to NGSS.
Tara
45:56
Yes the matrix is especially helpful for vertical alignment across a team of science teachers so a cohort of students is not experiencing huge gaps
Nicole
46:35
Was the maxtrix given in the beginning?
Gemma
47:00
I will like to connect all these ideas in flashcards in a huge spider web tied to the ceeling in my classroom.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
47:00
@Wayne: In science-focused lessons, we design the lessons so that students are doing what scientists do - ask questions, investigate answers, etc. When we design engineering-focused lessons, we do the same thing. Students are doing what engineers do: uncover criteria and constraints, design solutions, and iterate. No matter the academic level of students, all should be experiencing lessons that put them in the mindset of scientists and/or engineers.
Kathy
47:16
What a cool idea!!
Nicole
47:25
@Gemma that is a great idea

@Kyle your information makes so much sense!
Gemma
49:19
I used to have spider webs, I will find the picture, but from listening to Kyle, I think I will hang flashcards to connect the lessons
Lauren Slanker (MSI)

SEM system- need to actively engage students through use of moon phase flipbooks so that they develop the model of a system to engage with the question.
wayne
51:34
I like to use YouTube science experiments that they can do and explain to me how they work. Example,
Julie
51:38
We are slowly upgrading our curriculum- unpacking and going through all these marvelous skills you've taught us.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
51:42
Mke sure to type in your questions to the Q&A - we’ll answer as many as we can at the end of the webinar.
wayne
52:00
Example, water holes on top and bottom force different.
Tara
52:10
One of the biggest ways my teaching has changed is utilizing models that students create as a way to assess content and that particular SEP and having them revise a picture model is an incredible way to track growth of a concept
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
52:11
@Julie - that's good to hear! We were beginning this work at my old district when I left...it's a lot to process!
Tara
52:18
Also checklists for SEPs during activities
Adriana
52:32
I now blindly follow our newly purchased currilcum but I wonder how well is NGSS incorporated. I think the graphic organizer will help me to see if there is a progression across the board.
Missy
52:33
I have to do a total revamp this summer to get ready for Fall. 2nd year teacher - I have so much to learn! I wonder how many science teachers receive this kind of depth of training to teach science!!!!! And how to look at NGSS with respect to the curriculum given in district
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
52:47
@Adriana - what curriculum are you using?
wayne
53:18

Lauren Slanker (MSI)
53:19
@Adriana - what curriculum are you using?
Nicole
53:22
@Tara I really like that idea. I need to find this a way to make more explicit connections to CCC/ SEP.
Jenny
53:26
@ Adriana I know that Amplify has done very good job at this
Nicole
53:51
@Adriana I agree. I will need to do the work on this.
Adriana
54:29
@Jenny, yes, I think it does.
wayne
54:44
http://studyisland.com
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
55:37
@Karen - the planning for lessons should be similar for virtual environments. In other words, you should still have three dimensional goals that tie one lesson to the next in a coherent manner. The method of delivery will definitely be different, but the planning in terms of coherence should be similar no matter what environment you deliver the lessons in.
Ana Maria
55:56
@Missy: I can relate with your feelings of revamping the way you teach Science. My advice as a 10 year teacher… take it 1 step at a time. Don’t have to get rid of everything
Tara
57:14
@Missy - don’t forget these IQST people are the best of the best and probably put a ton of time and collaboration into planning - take it slow for sure and try to set reasonable goals especially depending on the curriculum and supplies you have available.
Missy
57:15
@Ana Maria - thanks! Wise words!
wayne

Lauren Slanker (MSI)
59:09
@Everyone: Yes! We spend out time carefully thinking out and designing 6 days of lessons. When I was in the classroom, I was thinking "what in the world am I doing tomorrow?". It's definitely a slower and more in-depth process at the Museum!
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:02:28
OpenSciEd is a free curriculum that is in the process of being developed. They release units (~6-8 weeks of learning) every 3 months or so. They are currently working on a Middle School curriculum now, are moving to High School for their next project, and then will focus on Elementary School. Eventually, they plan to include free lessons for all NGSS Performance Expectations, K-12.

Will - do you want to ask the question in the Q&A?
Kevin
01:03:45
SEM system- the driving question is relatable and easy for students to engage with. This builds their science skills confidence and leads to greater risks and better engagement.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:03:46
If you have questions running around in your head, make sure to put them in the Q&A for Kyle to answer at the end!

Nicole
01:04:12
All of my units could use a storyline, but I like Weather and Climate because of its relationship to climate change.
Katie
01:04:14
I can vouch for OpenSciEd! My MS students develop so many questions when we use their framework. We did 7.3 Metabolic Reactions which investigated a MS student's digestive system symptoms. I highly recommend it!
Missy
01:04:23
Yes! Ecosystems. The sequence that our district recommends does not make sense to me, so I think the storyline is so important to making the learning coherent
wayne

Can MSI have an open day for support to create story lines?
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:08:43
@Julie - we really struggle with chemistry too, so you're not alone! It's so hard when the content is so abstract. We can look to some of the places that Kyle posted with examples of units to see what other people have been able to do with it!
Glory

Thank you for an awesome event. These four days/12 sessions have been truly informative!!!
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:09:39
@Nicole - We normally teach an NGSS-focused week-long course in the summer that gets teachers to the point where they are able to start writing storylines, but that couldn't happen this year. We are still trying to figure out what our programming will look like this year/next summer, so stay tuned!
Julie
01:09:41
(And I'm hoping I can attend the Energy session, someday!!)
Brandon

@Robert: Amplify does use phenomenon to drive learning, and from we've heard is fairly coherent. One of the issues with any national-level curriculum is that the phenomenon chosen might not be relevant for your students, so you're always going to have to analyze if they work for your students. I would recommend looking at the tools Kyle shared in the last Now What for more information.

Thank you so much for hosting these seminars! The information shared has been so valuable for me, who has not been in the classroom in a few years, but looking to get back into science education next fall. I appreciate all your time, energy and enthusiasm that went into presenting the topics. Thanks again!
