Professor O’Connor Presents at National Research Council Meeting

SEDFACULTYProfessor Catherine O’Connor was invited to speak at a workshop hosted by the National Research Council (NRC), entitled Literacy in Science: the Overlap between CCSS and NGSS. The meeting will be held at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. on December 9th and 10th.

The NRC meeting will be a workshop to develop an understanding of how the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) can “compliment each other and be used in concert to improve students’ reasoning.”

Professor O’Connor will be presenting as part of a panel. The panel will discuss “What Science Teachers Need to Know About the Language of Science Texts.”
