Job title: 
Faculty Affiliates

Ari is part of a team at the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE) where he develops Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)-designed curriculum and supports teachers through professional learning experiences. Through a partnership with the San Francisco Unified School District, he has co-developed a project-based, middle school science curriculum aligned to the NGSS that focuses on performance-based assessments. Alongside this work, Ari is also part of the OpenSciEd initiative to help middle school science teachers nationwide as they engage learners with the three dimensions of NGSS using responsive and equitable storylines. As part of CalTeach, Ari coordinates the Summer Research Institute (part of a Berkeley Engineering's Research Experience for Teachers program) which supports both undergraduate STEM students and in-service science teachers as they design new classroom experiences intended to engage students with the practices of science and engineering.
