Shared Grant with VHSEF 9/2016
Project Objective or Need
Next Generation Science Standards have been adopted by the state of NJ and will be implemented at North Hunterdon-Voorhees Regional High School District 2016-2017 school year. NGSS focus is on self-directing learning versus teacher focused learning.
POGIL is an acronym for Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning. Inquiry based learning and model development are key components of the Next Generation Science Standards, STEM/STEAM learning.
Teachers will need to learn how to create inquiry based learning lessons that incorporate the NGSS and STEM/STEAM learning. The POGIL process provides a starting point for teachers. Teachers will be able to develop their own POGIL type lessons to meet the needs of all levels of students.
This shared grant with Voorhees High School Education Foundation made it possible for all Science Teachers in our district to have a common base of knowledge using this process.
