This was an awesome seminar that was straight forward and easy to understand. I loved how they gave examples of lessons on implementing NGSS in your classroom for each grade level.

The exposure to the NGSS was most helpful. The progression through the grade levels was excellent. The performance expectations were spotlighted and I now see the NGSS in a new light. Some of the speakers were hard to hear, even with the volume turned all the way up.
