Powerful Instructional Practices Science
Teachers who adopt SREB’s Powerful Science Instructional Practices encourage students to develop a love of science and a desire to explore natural or human-designed phenomena in or out of the classroom. We encourage teachers to use these instructional practices in tandem with our Powerful Instructional Practices for Literacy and Mathematics.
In this video, SREB’s president Stephen L. Pruitt explains how teachers who adopt SREB’s Powerful Science Instructional Practices can empower students to understand and use science in their daily lives and careers.
As lead developers of the Next Generation Science Standards, Pruitt partnered with Brett Moulding, a member of the National Academy of Sciences Board on Science Education, to write and refine the practices. The practices are based on NGSS’ model of three-dimensional learning: science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas.
