HELPING RIC MEET THE DEMANDS OF
NEW YORK STATE’S ACADEMIC STANDARDS
Real-world performance tasks are well suited to meeting the New York Science Learning Standards, New York State Next Generation Standards, and Technology Education Standard 5. They provide hands-on opportunities for students to think critically, problem solve, and use their skills to create and innovate
Defined STEM provides an online library of pre-built performance tasks that are based on careers and enhances instruction by asking students to apply the knowledge and skills they learned in the classroom to solve a real-world problem. We’ve partnered with RIC to address the needs for the region’s districts and empower their teachers to meet the demands of these new rigorous standards.
Here are a few PERFORMANCE TASKS CREATED FOR RIC that align to New York State’s Science Learning Standards that your teachers can use (FREE) in their classroom this year:
