Published October 05, 2018 VMA0707
Much is already in print about Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). But what does NGSS look and sound like? What basics are needed to understand the foundation of the NGSS? How are phenomena defined, and what are some ways to effectively facilitate meaningful investigations with students? What are storylines and what are powerful ways to produce them for classroom instruction? And with all of the chatter around it, is there a glossary of the key terms and concepts needed to successfully interpret the operation and culture of NGSS?
We know the journey to developing a 3-dimensional approach to NGSS is challenging. Now you can access our growing library of NGSS-aligned hands-on kits and digital programs. PLUS, take advantage of our articles, activities and videos, all designed to make teaching science easier in your classroom!
