Transitioning to the 2016 Science and Technology/Engineering (STE) Curriculum Framework Understanding the Vision and Goals of the Massachusetts STE Standards Turn and Talk: How are these words related to your current science program/curriculum?

Relevance Rigor Coherence Engagement 3 Vision Interactive Read the MA STE Vision pages 3-6 of the 2016 STE Framework Identify a key sentence or phrase that you think is particularly important for your work. What is one message you will take away? 4

Goals for STE education Civic Participation Informing real world decisions and solving problems College Preparation Developing a deep understanding of concepts and practices Career Readiness Engaging in the scientific and technical reasoning required by many fields 5 5 Emphasis in 2016 STE Standards Implication for Curriculum & Instruction

Relevance: Organized around core explanatory ideas that explain the world around us The goal of teaching needs to shift from facts and concepts to explaining phenomena Rigor: Central role for science and engineering practices with concepts Inquiry- and design-based learning involves regular engagement with practices to build, use, and apply knowledge Coherence: ideas and practices

build over time and among disciplines Teaching involves building a coherent storyline over time and among disciplines 6 Rigor: The balance of Concepts, Practices and Applications 7 Blending Science, Engineering, & Technology Interconnectedness Aspects of each

discipline play a role in helping explain and connect concepts and applications. Science answers questions using technology for experiments and observations that engineers have created. Science Understands natural world Needs new tools for discoveries

Technology Engineering Result of Uses science engineering discoveries Created to solve Designs products needs and wants and processes to meet needs 8 Framework Components

Aspirations for MA 2016 Standards originated from A Framework for K12 Science Education Successful students will: Have an appreciation for the beauty & wonder of science Gain knowledge to engage in public discussion Become analytical consumers of scientific technology and information Develop skills to enter careers in science, technology, or engineering 10 2016 STE Framework

Structural Features of the Standards 15 What an STE standard looks like Early Elementary ESS3. Earth and Human Activity K-ESS3-3. Communicate solutions to reduce the amount of natural resources an individual uses.* Clarification Statement: Examples of solutions could include reusing paper to reduce the number of trees cut down and recycling cans and bottles to reduce the amount of plastic or metal used. Asterisk (*) at the end of some standards designates those standards that have an engineering design application.

Articulates expected performance/demonstration Does not limit curriculum and instruction to the included practice 16 What an STE standard looks like Upper Elementary PS4. Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer 4-PS4-1. Develop a model of a simple mechanical wave (including sound) to communicate that waves (a) are regular patterns of motion along which energy travels and (b) can cause objects to move. Clarification Statement: Examples of models could include diagrams, analogies, and physical models. State Assessment Boundary:

Interference effects, electromagnetic waves, or non-periodic waves are not expected in state assessment. Articulates expected performance/demonstration Does not limit curriculum and instruction to the included practice 17 What an STE standard looks like Middle School LS2. Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics 7.MS-LS2-5. Evaluate competing design solutions for protecting an ecosystem. Discuss benefits and limitations of each design.* Clarification Statements: Examples of design solutions could include water, land, and

species protection, and the prevention of soil erosion. Examples of design solution constraints could include scientific, economic, and social considerations. asterisk (*) at the end of some standards designates those standards that have an engineering design application. Articulates expected performance/demonstration Does not limit curriculum and instruction to the included practice 18 What an STE standard looks like High School PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions HS-PS2-5. Provide evidence that an electric current can produce a magnetic field and that a changing magnetic field can produce an electric current. Clarification Statements: Examples of evidence can include movement of a magnetic

compass when placed in the vicinity of a current-carrying wire, and a magnet passing through a coil that turns on the light of a Faraday flashlight. State Assessment Boundary: Explanations of motors of generators are not expected on state assessment. Articulates expected performance/demonstration Does not limit curriculum and instruction to the included practice 19 PreK- 8 Standards now include:

Earth and Space Science Life Science (Biology) Physical Science (Chemistry and Physics) Technology/Engineering Districts may provide a context or specific focus: Robotics Marine Ecology Biotechnology Computer Science

20 PreK-8 grade-by-grade standards Grade-specific standards support: Collaboration and sharing across districts on curriculum and resources Consistency when students move schools/districts Standards are appropriate for students of each grade All 4 disciplines in each grade encourage integrated curriculum Key take aways The standards are the outcomes of learning that students can demonstrate what they know

what they are able to do A lesson may include one or more practices. By the end of the unit or year, students should have multiple opportunities to apply a number of practices. STE standards guide teaching and learning.
