NGSS Productive Discourse Videos
See interviews, implementation, and classroom discourse from our projects.
The following video resources feature footage from Little Village Academy, a K-8 Chicago Public School, during the 2016-2017 school year. Videos were captured during the capstone year of a four-year partnership focused on building whole-school capacity for implementing science instruction aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, funded by the Chicago Community Trust and the Illinois Board of Higher Education. The videos include a 4th grade classroom, 7th grade classroom, and principal interview demonstrating a whole-school approach to implementing Talk Science, an evidence-based productive discourse strategy from The TERC Inquiry Project. More information on Talk Science can be found at https://inquiryproject.terc.edu/index.html.
