Did you miss the "Coaching Teachers in NGSS" Webinar?

Posted: September 14, 2020

We hosted a FREE webinar on Coaching Teachers in NGSS on Monday, September 14th. If you missed it, the recording will be available for NSELA Members next week! Keep an eye out on your inbox for an announcement.

This session chronicled the 3+year journey of successes and missteps of one science instructional coach from NGSS novice to three-dimensional capacity-building in a large urban district. There were opportunities to collaborate as we think about supporting teachers in the NGSS and consider the current status of science education around the Framework for Science Education.

Speaker: Spencer Martin Ed. S., Curriculum Instructional Coach: Secondary Science, Apple Teacher

"Methods for performing hand hygiene of gloved hands for extended use of disposable medical gloves" - CDC does not recommend disinfection of disposable medical gloves as standard practice. This practice is inconsistent with general disposable glove usage, but, in times of extreme disposable medical glove shortages, this option may need to be considered. This is a pandemic - can use soap and water on gloves - soap does kill the virus when lathered up as part of the cleaning process to reuse the gloves! Put gloves in a plastic bag with the name for the same student's use later. Check out this article to make sure you will have sufficient gloves for science/STEM lab use.
