Position Statement on the Next Generation Science Standards
The Oregon Science Teachers Association strongly supports the adoption and implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards. Read our position statement here.
We are planning a two day conference to accommodate our colleagues whose districts no longer honor the State-Wide Inservice day, or need that day to travel to the Portland Metro Area.
Our goal is to provide you with the quality professional development you need to stay informed of the conceptual shifts in science education that the NGSS present, and to polish your craft.
Got a good lesson, idea or activity to share? Submit a session proposal. Know someone else who does? Encourage them to submit a proposal. For details about the conference and to submit a proposal click here!
Deadline for submissions is April 30, 2014
