Action Research Cycle 1 Product - The NGSS Innovation Configuration Map
During the first year of the doctoral program, one of the artefacts developed was the NGSS Innovation Configuration Map shown here.
NGSS Innovation Configuration Map
What will it look like when the NGSS is being properly implemented in a science classroom? Innovation Configuration Maps (ICM) are a tool developed to address educational change from the perspective of the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM). The following innovation configuration map (ICM) is built on the principles established by Hord and Hall.
The Innovation Configuration Map incorporates the three dimensional nature of the Next Generation Science Standards. A classroom where the NGSS is being properly implemented will have evidence of students engaged with the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCI), the science and engineering principles (SEP), and the cross cutting concepts (CCC). Additionally, both formative and summative assessments - aligned with the NGSS - will be utilized affectively.
