This webinar will build your familiarity and understanding of the Ocean Literacy - NGSS alignment tool. We will first describe why alignment of the Ocean Literacy Framework with NGSS is needed, and explain the rating scale used to describe the different relationships between the Ocean Literacy Principles and the Disciplinary Core Ideas that comprise the Next Generation Science Standards. Participants will explore the alignment tool through the examination of particular grade bands, Ocean Literacy Principles and DCIs, along with the ratings explanations provided by a panel of experts. We will discuss your observations, questions and ideas for how to use the alignment document.

Presented by:

  • Sarah Pedamonte, Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley
  • Craig Strang, Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley
  • Lynn Whitley, Wrigley Institute of Environmental Studies, University of Southern California
