Build Your NGSS Toolkit: Systems and System Models

This course defines systems and systems models from an engineering perspective, tying modeling to the NGSS science classroom. It weaves together multiple respected science education courses to support classroom modeling as both a critical Science and Engineering Practice and a Crosscutting Concept. Practical methodologies and routines to implement modeling are explored. A classroom-tested lesson is provided upon course completion. By the end of the course, teachers will be able to: -define a scientific model and explain why models are useful -describe the specific attributes and engineering values of system models -explain how an NGSS-aligned curriculum can employ and support student modeling -describe and implement multiple modeling strategies for the classroom, including digital instruction
