NGSS Curriculum Development: Lessons Learned from the Mi-STAR Program
View the Webinar here.
Webinar description: Designing curriculum and assessment materials aligned with the NGSS takes a great deal of work and expertise, and also offers a great opportunity for learning. This webinar will describe a statewide project to develop an NGSS-aligned integrated middle school science curriculum, called Mi-STAR. Though the Mi-STAR project is designing materials to support NGSS implementation in Michigan, the lessons learned regarding curriculum design, political considerations, and project management will provide insights applicable to many other locations and projects where similar work is being done.
