Next Generation Science Standards
NGSS Crosscutting Concepts: Stability and Change
NGSS @ NSTA - View the series

This web seminar took place on May 28, 2013, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. eastern daylight time. The presenter was Brett Moulding, director of the Partnership for Effective Science Teaching and Learning. This was the fifth web seminar in a series of seven focused on the crosscutting concepts that are part of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

The PowerPoint, related resources from the NSTA Learning Center, and web links from the presentation are now contained in the above resource collection. Clicking on the collection link will place it in your Learning Center, My Library, neatly organized under the My Resource Collections tab.

Mr. Moulding began the web seminar by defining stability and change and discussing the inclusion of this concept in previous standards documents such as the National Science Education Standards (NSES). Participants brainstormed examples of science phenomena that can be explained by using the concept of stability and change. Some of their ideas included Earth’s orbit around the Sun, carrying capacity of ecosystems, and replication of DNA. Mr. Moulding then discussed the role of stability and change within NGSS. Participants again shared their ideas in the chat, providing their thoughts about classroom implementation of this crosscutting concept.

Seminar participants received an NSTA SciGuide. A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' My PD Record and Certificates area in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.

Thanks to the participants and the presenter for the learning opportunity, the interactions, and a job well done!
