- deepen their understanding of how the three dimensions of NGSS (practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts) are designed to blend together during classroom instruction;
- dive in to one or two examples of what the teaching and learning to achieve NGSSlooks like in a Kindergarten classroom; and
- discuss instructional practices with other Kindergarten teachers and begin the development of a grade-level community in the NSTA Learning Center to support students learning.
