This workshop exposes participants to real teaching scenarios written by the teachers on the NGSS Diversity and Equity Team. Seven case studies are analyzed to identify research- and standards-based classroom strategies through an equity lens to engage various student groups including: (1) economically disadvantaged students, (2) students from major racial and ethnic groups, (3) students with disabilities, (4) English language learners, (5) girls, (6) students in alternative education, and (7) gifted and talented students. Participants will analyze an NGSS lesson to identify challenges and make adjustments to better support all students. Each participant will receive a copy of Okhee Lee's "NGSS For All Students" book.
