Engaging Prospective Teachers in Learning Disciplinary Core Ideas and Crosscutting Concepts in an Undergraduate Course in Biological Science or Biochemistry

edited by: Jack Rhoton

This chapter, by Ann T. S. Taylor and Joseph W. Shane, discusses ideas for embedding aspects of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) within biology courses that prospective teachers commonly complete at the undergraduate level. We begin by reviewing the guidelines for developing and executing preservice biology classes, then discuss ways of aligning vision and change guidelines to the NGSS. Teacher background information, standards, assessments, references, and resources are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Preface, Acknowledgments, and Index.
