Cynthia Apalinski

Through the “Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Elementary Professional Community,” Ms. Apalinski and Mrs. Dollard will lead a study group comprised of third through fifth grade teachers. The group will provide teachers with the tools necessary to successfully support elementary students to use evidence to construct scientific explanations and to engage in argumentation as the NGSS are implemented. The group will also develop their capacity to engage as a professional learning community that deepens their practice in support of student learning.
