Event Description

Next Generation Science Standards, expected out next year, are based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education released in 2011 by the National Research Council (NRC). The Framework describes the major practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas that all students should be familiar with by the end of high school. Starting September 11, 2012 and continuing through December, NSTA is presenting eight web seminars on the practices described in the Framework. This web seminar will focus on Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information. Register today!

Teachers will learn more about:

  • why and how scientists and engineers must communicate clearly and persuasively the ideas and methods they generate;
  • the importance of critiquing and communicating ideas individually and in groups
  • the multiple ways to communicate information and ideas, including using tables, diagrams, graphs, models, and equations, as well as orally, in writing, and through extended discussions; and
  • multiple sources to acquire information that are used to evaluate the merit and validity of claims, methods, and designs.
