Student Learning Outcomes—students will

  • demonstrate understanding science concepts and principles needed to advance learning for all students as defined by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in the four core ideas of physical, life, Earth and space sciences, engineering design, and promotes the scientific abilities of all children (Appendix D, All Standards, All Students);
  • provide evidence of integration of Science and Engineering Practices and Crosscutting Concepts with Disciplinary Core Ideas and includes examples that illustrate this integration when teaching.
