I am getting A LOT of questions from teachers who are finding out that they will be teaching NGSS next year.
Don’t panic! I created a 10 minute guide to reading the Next Generation Science Standards. This is a great first step.
In this video I discuss the 3-D model which includes Disciplinary Core Ideas, Science and Engineering Practices and Cross Cutting Concepts. Also, I show you how to find the standards articulation with other grade levels and across disciplines. I also discuss Performance Expectations and Evidence Statements. If you are interested in learning more about how to use Evidence Statements in your backwards planning, check out this blog post.
Here are some helpful links:
