The learning objectives of this module are: 1. Students will articulate and demonstrate their understanding of Next Generation Science Standards and Three-dimensional Learning.2. Students will integrate Guided Inquiry and Authentic Learning methods with their collborative teaching of NGSS with science teachers in the school library and the classroom.3. Students will articulate the benefits of Open Education Resources and apply criteria to evaluate and select resources that support Guided Inquiry, Authentic Learning, and NGSS Three Dimensional Learning.The Tasks in this module include:Task 1. Getting to Know Next Generation Science StandardsTask 2. Mapping Next Generation Science StandardsTask 3. Understanding Next Generation Science StandardsTask 4. Collaborating with a Science TeacherTask 5. Teaching Next Generation Science Standards Authentically Task 6. Resourcing Next Generation Science StandardsThe expected learning outcomes resulting from these learning objectives are:1] Enhanced science literacy for school librarians;2] Enhanced knowledge of Guided Inquiry and Authentic Learning for science teachers.As an introduction to the module we view a video that talks about a new vision for science. Next Generation Science standards not only set higher expectations, they aaply what we have learned about how children learn. Next Generation Science Standards are about "doing science." A hands-on approach creates excitement as learners experience science and how it impacts their lives. Click here to view Next Generations Science: A new Vision for k-12 Science Education. As you watch the video, consider the question, "How is the teaching and learning you observe different from how your K-12 science education? Take notes as you view the video. We will use these notes in Task 2 when we create concept maps that represent what we are learning about NGSS.
