The Illinois Biology Storylines
After engaging in over 200 hours of professional development with national experts, we knew that in order to really understand how to bring NGSS to classrooms, teachers needed to experience the same productive struggle that kids do in an NGSS classroom. With that in mind, we formed the first storylining working group, which is open to anyone to join at any time. The group is led by Dr. Jason Crean and Mrs. Kristin Rademaker and meets once a month to maintain that open collaboration. We are able to offer Professional Development Credits to participants with an open-door policy.
