The educator selects a conceptual category of the NGSS or CCSSM that they wish to explore in greater depth. They engage in a detailed analysis of the standards in that conceptual category, including the analysis of classroom tasks that address the standard. The educator devises a set of criteria for measuring student progress on the standards in that category appropriate to their grade level, designs and teaches a series of lessons addressing the standards to be measured, then analyzes student performance using the created criteria.
Many aspects of CCSSM and NGSS may be new to secondary educators. In this badge, you will identify an area to investigate within one of the standards from the list suggested below. You will engage in readings about that content using the resources noted above to deepen your knowledge of the content area then plan, implement, and study a lesson related to that content with your students.
Not all the resources above are relevant to each of the content areas. Consult with your MMTP badge partner so you select good resources to explore.
It is suggested that the work be completed in a small learning community to accomplish and discuss the learning activities.
To earn the NGSS and CCSSM in Action badge, you must receive a passing evaluation on Parts 1 and 3, and a “Yes” for Part 2.
