Upcoming Webinar: Is the Science Enough?
October 29, 2019 at 2 p.m. CST 

Districts around the country are desperately seeking high-quality instructional materials that translate the NGSS into a coherent set of learning experiences to support student learning of the content. But is just a logical learning progression of science standards enough to create a classroom culture that can close persistent opportunity gaps that disproportionately limit students of color and students of poverty? Insights from the learning sciences tell us that agency and belonging are critical to learning. Join in a generative conversation to consider how instructional materials, professional learning, and classroom practice can come together to ensure students of the nondominant culture feel their voice has influence on their own learning and others’ learning and they too are valued members who belong in a community of learners.
