The educator selects a conceptual category of the NGSS or CCSSM that they wish to explore in greater depth and analyzes the standards in that category. The educator devises a set of criteria for measuring progress on the standards in an NGSS or CCSSM conceptual category appropriate to their grade level, designs a series of lessons addressing the standards to be measured, teaches the lessons, and analyzes student performance using the measure created.
Many aspects of CCSSM and NGSS may be new to secondary educators. In this micro-credential, you will identify an area from a list of suggestions below to investigate within one of the standards. You will engage in readings about that content using the identified resources to deepen your knowledge of the content area and plan, implement, and study a lesson related to that content with your students.
