6th Grade Middle School Science & Engineering Mastery

Help me give my students the opportunity to gain knowledge of the new AZ Science Standards, based on the NGSS Science & Engineering practices. We are in need of curriculum to meet new testing implementation this 2019-20 school year.

My Students

At the beginning of this year, our District restructured our school to become a new Middle School. The school is located in a rural area and considered a Title I school.

In October, 2018, the Arizona Department of Education adopted new Arizona Science Standards.

This year implementation of these standards begin along with new field assessments.

In describing my students, they each come from a somewhat rural area, many having varying demographics, yet they all get along very well. These students are unique, skillful, and creative. They each will have an opportunity to use their creativity and abilities to cooperate and collaborate, promoting positive morale among the entire school population, it's staff and stakeholders.

My Project

6th Grade Middle School Science and Engineering Practices Mastery

In the fall of 2018, the AZ Department of Education, working with the ASTA have adopted new AZ Science Standards.These materials will assist our core Science teachers, with curriculum development.

They will also enhance the Hands-on requirements of the new AzSS, based on the NGSS, where Science Design and Engineering practices, including modeling are the focus. These New standards also use Cross Cutting concepts and Disciplinary Core, (Big) Ideas, to help students better understand phenomena. Our goal is with implementation of these new practices, we will help students move beyond just, "Knowing about Science", by digging deeper, to making sense of the world around them. New field testing implementation will begin this 2019-2020 school year. The materials selected will assist teachers in this transition, as well as with implementation of the new standards and the creation of assessments.
