  • On Next Generation Science Standards & Systems Thinking | Wildwoods Foundation
    majority of our population Our contention is that our society needs to make a conscious effort to accommodate that lack of nature exposure or as eloquently coined by Last Child in the Woods author Richard Louv nature deficiency disorder Years ago we attended a conference where Louv asked the room how many of us as a children had tried to dam a creek When most of the hands in the room shot up he responded and we paraphrase That experience taught you more about physics than an entire week in a classroom At Wildwoods we believe that it is just such experiences that form the foundations of students understanding about science and engineering whether it s controlling the flow of water information or electrons That s why the most important aspects of our program are hands on learning experiences Even games as opposed to scientific experiments or data collection that illustrate scientific principles give students the opportunity to develop a kinetic understanding of that principle e g the Deadly Links game from Project Wild illustrating the principle of bio accumulation as well as the principle of nested systems However for all the forethought and planning that goes into cre ating quality programs with engaging activities sometimes our most important job is to just get out of the way and allow students to have their own moment and begin to develop their own personal relationship with nature Thus we try to include some unstructured time for individual exploration It is those discoveries that we make ourselves that will stay with us for a lifetime And as Louv illustrated with his question those discoveries of such an elemental principle of physics or science have academic and practical applications that would fill volumes and span hundreds of thousands if not more different types of professions And as David Orr is famously quoted as saying All education is environmental education Without context these ideas concepts and principles that we teach are abstract disconnected from each other and from us And to paraphrase Orr also disconnected from reality For these principles to have relevance in students lives and in the world in which they live they need the foundation of that context that is nature Let s give them that context From the Next Generation Science Standards Dimension 2 Crosscutting Concepts Crosscutting concepts have application across all domains of science As such they are a way of linking the different domains of science They include Patterns similarity and diversity Cause and effect Scale proportion and quantity Systems and system models Energy and matter Structure and function Stability and change The Framework emphasizes that these concepts need to be made explicit for students because they provide an organizational schema for interrelating knowledge from various science fields into a coherent and scientifically based view of the world SEVEN CROSSCUTTING CONCEPTS OF THE FRAMEWORK The committee identified seven crosscutting scientific and engineering concepts 1 Patterns Observed patterns of forms and events guide organization and classification and they prompt
