About the Course

What are the science and engineering practices in Colorado Academic Standards for Science?  How do they progress for students from K-12?  In this course you will learn these answers to these questions and then complete a project based project to develop a tool box of strategies used to teach the Science and Engineering practices:  

  • Asking Questions/Defining Problems
  • Developing and Using Models
  • Planning and Carrying Out Investigations
  • Analyzing and Interpreting Data
  • Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking, 
  • Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions
  • Engaging in Argument from Evidence, 
  • Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information

You will then use this tool box to create a lesson plan that integrates multiple science and engineering practices to use in your own classroom.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Describe the role of the Science and Engineering Practices in 3-dimensional Learning
  • Define each practice using student appropriate language for a given grade level.
  • Unpack Colorado Science standards to determine what students need to demonstrate to show proficiency in the Science and Engineering Practices
  • Develop a tool box of strategies  through research and synthesis to teach students each of the Science and Engineering Practices.
  • Develop a lesson plan that integrates multiple Science and Engineering practices to teach a specific state standard
  • Grade(s): Kindergarten 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade 7th Grade 8th Grade 9th Grade 10th Grade 11th Grade 12th Grade Elementary K-5 Secondary 6-12
  • Subject(s): Science Technology
  • Teacher Quality Standard(s): QS 1.A QS 1.B QS 1.C QS 2.C QS 2.D

Elizabeth Orme
Great course with amazing resources you can use in your classroom right away.
Emily Glissmann
I highly recommend this course for any teachers transitioning to or improving NGSS-inspired Science instruction. This course is packed with strategies and frameworks that can be immediately applied to any science content or grade level.
Joseph Bailey
I really enjoyed learning about science and engineering practices and how they correspond to state/NGSS standards in this class. The assignments were interesting and gave me lots of freedom to tailor my plans for my specific content area.
