5783 Next Generation Science Exemplar (NGSX)
Dec 7
8:00 AM
Schoolcraft College-Radcliff Center
SolutionWhere - Science
The Next Generation Science Exemplar (or NGSX) is professional learning conducted in face-to-face study groups. Participants explore the major ideas found in the NRC Framework and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), developing tools and strategies to take this new vision back into their classrooms.

The focus of NGSX is integrating three-dimensional learning into science classrooms, in which teachers support students in using science and engineering practices to develop, apply, and refine disciplinary and crosscutting ideas. Teachers engage in these practices and investigate classroom cases to explore how to bring these approaches into their own classrooms.

Study groups work through the nature of modeling, support for classroom discourse, and difficulties students face in reasoning about the nature of matter. Participants consider how they can support the vision of the Framework.

SolutionWhere - Safe & Healthy Schools

The report also finds that African-Americans and Latinos are suspended and expelled from schools at disproportionately higher rates than their white peers.


Department recommendation for producing positive and safe school environments while reducing suspension and expulsions focus on:

1. Evidence-based prevention

2. Instituting developmentally appropriate discipline practices

3. Ensuing that discipline is administered in a culturally fair and equitable manner.


This course will include a discussion of a number of practical alternatives to suspension, many of which have been implemented by Wayne County Schools implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).


the audience for this course are school administrators, PBIS team leaders and school climate team leaders.
