The new vision provided in the NRC Framework for K-12 Science Education and the resulting Next Generation Science Standards provide a collective opportunity to broadly promote equity and social justice in education. These policy documents highlight that learning is fundamentally a cultural as well as a cognitive process—and that science learning experiences should be designed to overlap with the lives of youth and their communities in order to heighten meaning and relevance. Attendees will explore classroom talk structures and formative assessment approaches that support more inclusive learning experiences for students. STEM Teaching Tools that can be broadly used to support NGSS implementation will be shared.

Our keynote speaker is Philip Bell from the University of Washington. Bell pursues a cognitive and cultural program of research across diverse environments focused on how people learn. Bell was a member of the Board on Science Education with the National Academy of Sciences and served on the committee of the NRC Framework for K-12 Science Education that was used to develop our state standards.
