Connecting Literacy and Science with NGSS and Common
In August, close to 350 educators nationwide took part in a day-long virtual conference
where they learned practical strategies for integrating the Next Generation Science
Standards (NGSS) into their classrooms.
Now available is the best of the Connecting Literacy and Science with NGSS and Common Core
archive for only $79 for NSTA Members and $99 for nonmembers.
This web-based professional learning opportunity featured interactive sessions including
the crucial skills of reading, writing, and science discourse. Participants learned
how to use the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to improve literacy
skills among students.

Here is what our teachers told us about the NGSS Virtual Conference--
- "I learned useful strategies that I will use in the classroom. I also do not feel
so overwhelmed about the implementation of the CCSS in the science classroom."
- "I loved the video of the chemistry students grappling with the text about acids
and bases. We need to read in science BECAUSE it's hard. Elementary students need
to move beyond "just right" books. This conference gave me some tools to help them
- "Format was very smooth and convenient. Presenters shared quite a bit in such a
compact amount of time. It was helpful to know the archives will be available for
further reflection, and also to see the session I couldn't register for."
- "This is a great way to get professional development without much expense."
