Horizon Research, Inc., 2016
During the recent Ebola outbreak of 2014-15, science teachers were fighting a different kind of epidemic--an epidemic of misinformation. Despite the low risk of spread here in the U.S., some school districts closed schools when they learned that staff, parents, or students had been on the same flight as one of the infected Dallas nurses. A poll by…

Trygstad, Peggy J.; Banilower, Eric R.; Pasley, Joan D. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2016
The eight science and engineering practices outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are key to student science learning. However, there is limited guidance for teachers on what these practices should "look like" in instruction across different grade ranges and topic areas. This paper describes the development of two…

Pasley, Joan D.; Trygstad, Peggy J.; Banilower, Eric R. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2016
The eight science and engineering practices outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are key to student science learning. However, there is limited guidance for teachers on what these practices "look like" in instruction across different grade ranges and topic areas. Further, there is little existing guidance for teachers…

Pasley, Joan D.; Trygstad, Peggy J.; Banilower, Eric R. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2016
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are composed of three intertwined dimensions--disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts--that provide a foundation for what students should know and be able to do at various grade levels. The eight science practices outlined in the NGSS are critical components…

Trygstad, Peggy J.; Banilower, Eric R.; Smith, P. Sean; Nelson, Courtney L. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2014
The logic model that implicitly drives most professional development (PD) efforts asserts that PD leads to changes in teacher knowledge and beliefs, which leads to improved classroom practice, and ultimately, better student outcomes. However, efforts to study the impacts of PD programs are often hampered by the scarcity of high-quality…
