1 Next Generation Science Standards Implementation in Liberal Studies at CSU Bakersfield

2 The Project Increase abilities of pre-service K-8 teachers in knowledge and practice of NGSS 2 main components – SCI 325A: Integrated Science from a life science perspective Capstone science course in Liberal studies – EDTE 310: Early field experience in teaching Goal: Integrate and align content and practice

3 Content: SCI 325A Integrated Science Adjusted course content to more closely align with NGSS – Including small-scale introduction of Engineering principles Added module on Academic Literacy Revised lesson plan assignment – Replaced CA Science standards with NGSS practices, crosscutting concepts & performance expectations – Peer review with revision – Academic language component

4 EDTE 310: Early field experience Change venue and verb – From in-school school observation to After school teaching – Lesson-plan assignment aligned to SCI 325A Ideally, extension of 325A lesson plan Practice: students teach the lesson they designed – With opportunity for revision

5 Assessment Teaching skills and Abilities – 25 item pre-post Science Teacher Efficacy Belief Instrument Asks specifically about teaching practices Content knowledge – 46 item Pre-post course Knowledge survey based on NGSS and SCI 325A content coverage 12 practice only items; 17 content only, 17 practice & content Composite measure: Average change (post-pre) All results on SCI 325A students – EDTE 310 students excluded because n<5

6 STEBI Each question analyzed individually for Students taking SCI 325A (Wilcoxon sign-rank test) Two items showed significant changes: – “When teaching Science I usually welcome student questions” showed a significant change towards the “Disagree” end of the scale (p=0.046) – “I know the step necessary to teach Science concepts effectively” showed a significant change toward the “Agree” scale (p=0.031) 23 remaining questions showed no change

7 Results: NGSS Knowledge Survey Mean ±95% Confidence interval Overall, p< ; Practice only p<0.05; Content only & PE p<

8 More NGSS Multiple regression analyses: – Independent analysis for each question subset – Prior GPA, Exam performance, and Lab performance as Independent variables 1 Significant effect – Lab performance on practice-only question subset. (b=0.02, p=0.042)
