NGSS Classrooms: What Role-Based Learning Looks Like
Experience three-dimensional science instruction during this interactive lesson demonstration that invites you to take on the role of a food engineer just as a student would in this mock 6th grade classroom. Using a digital simulation and the iterative design process, you’ll create a health bar for rescue workers and the victims of natural disaster. Throughout our time together, you’ll experience first-hand how role-based learning can make science instruction more realistic, relevant, and engaging to students. Note: While this session revolves around a 6th grade lesson, the concepts that we’ll demonstrate and discuss in this workshop can be applied to all grades K-8.
