Science Education: The Next Generation
What does it take to implement a science standard at a national level? National scale standards in the US level have been controversial and the science standards are no different. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) have taken an inventive approach to describe and represent the inherently complex process of how we engage learners in making sense of the world around them.
Science benefits from having a degree of universality like mathematics making the content somewhat less controversial than language arts or the social sciences. However, helping educators understand what it looks like to integrate those standards into their teaching, engage their students in learning and develop understanding is no small task. The NGSS delves into the process and content of science, while incorporating other standards. How is this reflected in pre-service and in-service programs that will support educators and school administrator’s practices to embrace the intent of these standards?
What are the expectations of publishers implementing the standard? How can educators use the standard to support their teaching methods, and how should parents expect that science teaching would look different? Join Michael Jay and guests as they discuss Science Education and how it will change science education for decades to come.

YeYe says, "I am YeYe Angel Lyke Saint. I have a Bachelor of Science in Human Services, and I am a certified health worker. My experience began in 1988, working on a Demonstration Project funded by the Centers for Disease Control researching behaviors that place people at risk for HIV/AIDS/Hepatitis and other high risk sexual and drug related behaviors.
In 1996, I began a project funded by the Texas Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control on Harm Reduction, which dealt with decriminalizing drugs. I also worked on a Syphilis Elimination Project. The programs were historically based. They led to my realization about the importance of advising people to learn the connection of diseases from the past to the present.
I help my audience make informed health care decisions through their own research. My motto is 'Don't take my word for it; go and read it for yourselves.'"

Wednesday, April 23, 6pm EDT: Mitchell’s guest tonight is Dr. Joe Dispenza, who first caught the public’s eye as one of the scientists featured in the award-winning film What the BLEEP Do We Know!?
As an author, Dr. Joe has written Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind (Health Communications, Inc., 2007), followed by Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One (Hay House, 2012), both of which detail the neuroscience of change and epigenetics.
Tune in tonight for a very interesting show to hear Joe talk with me about his latest book, You are the Placebo (Hay House, 2014), which builds on his previous work.
Dr. Joe received his doctor of chiropractic degree from Life University, graduating with honors. His postgraduate training covered neurology, neuroscience, brain function and chemistry, cellular biology, memory formation, and aging and longevity.

Xavier Figueroa. President at the Brain Health and Healing Foundation, received his doctoral degree in 2003 from the University of Washington’s Program in Neurobiology & Behavior in the Department of Environmental Health and Toxicology. His doctoral training was followed up by two post-doctoral fellowships within the Department of Bioengineering. His experience within academic research exposed him to the undercurrents of research politics, that silently shape how science is done and how results are interpreted. This experience made him aware of the need to maintain an open mind and champion deserving and fruitful ideas, such as the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of neurological injuries.
