The NGSS Adopted Oregon Instructional Science Materials Caravan

COSA is facilitating an instructional materials caravan to allow approved science providers (Categories 1-4) to share their program materials, provide samples, and arrange future interactions with district adoption committees.

Pearson will provide a morning workshop describing the NGSS standards and facilitate elementary, middle, and high school specific sessions related to Science Assessment. 

Join us for a K–12 workshop to unpack the Next Generation Science Standards followed by an opportunity to review ODE-approved science programs from multiple providers after lunch. This is a great opportunity for your selection committee to work on their adoption.
