Next Generation Science Standards and Environmental Education

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) represent an unprecedented opportunity for the environmental and sustainability education communities. They promise to dramatically change the focus and pedagogy of K-12 science education in the United States. The good news is that the NGSS are strong on environmental content, much stronger than what is being taught now in the vast majority of schools across the nation. It is not a given, however, that the transition to the new standards will occur widely or quickly. Organizations and individuals interested in education about the environment and sustainability issues can help states and school districts that are planning to implement the NGSS. This participation may ultimately influence the degree of penetration of the NGSS, and embedded environmental content, into the nation's classrooms.

Note: The webinars are each approximately 2 hours long so the files may take several minutes to download to your computer.

Go Green Radio with Jill Buck

Episode Description

Education is a dynamic institution. Every few years classrooms are introduced to new technologies and reforms that alter the learning experience in many ways. Throughout all these changes, however, two things have remained the same: first, human beings are completely dependent on natural systems, and second, human beings are capable of rendering natural systems incapable of supporting life. To what extent are we teaching students the necessary skills to preserve the natural systems on which they rely? Our guest today is Dr. Jerry Lieberman, who will discuss practical ways to use the environment around any school to create standards-based environmental education programs.
