Project SING Overview:
Project SING (Science Induction for the Next Generation) is a Teacher Quality Partnership project at Quinnipiac University that provides science instructors with an increased understanding of the Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS) and the effects of implementation on their classrooms. Project SING requires district participant teams to include a beginning teacher, a mentor, and an administrator in order to encourage changing communities of practice in schools. In part, Project SING utilizes a web-based professional development program (NGSX) to engage participants in activities designed to deepen their science content knowledge and expand their understanding of science pedagogy based on the three dimensions of the NGSS. Project SING actively encourages beginning teachers and their mentors to develop their new learning using the professional growth action plan within the TEAM module process.
