Building STEM excitement with hands-on, real-world classroom activities
from Scholastic Administration Magazine
At the heart of the Next Generation Science Standards — the first major revision of school science standards in more than 15 years — is project based learning, or the practice of learning by doing. Developed by science education groups, including the National Science Teachers Association, researchers and individual science teachers, NGSS supports classroom instruction that pushes students to take an active role in the practices of science. This new focus means a shift from teacher-centered learning to student-oriented learning.
