Document Type



Participants will learn how OpenSciEd’s instructional model puts students in the active role of doing science. As students move through the five routines of an OpenSciEd unit, they are exposed to all three dimensions of the NGSS, Disciplinary Core Ideas, Science and Engineering Practices, and Crosscutting Concepts. Come learn more about the five routines used in OpenSciEd and how OpenSciEd supports instruction based upon the NGSS through the use of phenomena, storylines, investigations, modeling, and classroom discourse.
