Are you a science teacher eager to grow your skills? An administrator thinking ahead to the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)? A parent, student, or stakeholder in the future of science education in the United States? Interested in finding ways of addressing the Common Core standards in your science curricula? Then you'll want to attend this Forum! Join Lisa Kenyon, Ed.D. and Victor Sampson, Ph.D. as they explore their research on the NGSS and Common Core methodology of engaging in evidence-based argumentation.
