POGIL and Next Generation Science Standards
The Next Generation Science Standards may seem daunting to implement in your high school physical science, biology, and chemistry courses. Never fear!
By using specially designed POGIL activities, your students can experience the inquiry-based collaborative learning envisioned by the developers of NGSS. With some basic training on how to use currently available curricula, you can successfully combine the three dimensions of the NGSS in your classroom: disciplinary core ideas (DCIs), Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs), and Crosscutting Concepts (CCs).
