To Server- NGSS Lesson Plans and Curriculum Development
I am assisting in teaching Science for Primary, Middle and Upper Grades. In helping develop Lesson Plans I have been faced with these questions and I need your help :
1. What components will need to be in the lesson plan in ordered to follow the NGSS Guide line?
2. What programs/texts do you feel follow the specific standards of NGSS?
3. How would a lab look like for three difference levels (Primary, Middle, and Upper), also the Diverse Learner will also need a lab format and,
4. How do I incorporate NGSS in good programs that are limited in that area?
Testing and Passing them seem to be the motivation for most of the schools and ratings per area is the key objective for the ILLinois school system.
Consider may dilemma,

Most science lessons (especially in middle and high school) use an Inquiry Lesson Plan model called the 5 E model.
The NGSS website (NGSS@NSTA) has several resources that you may find helpful. For example, there is a section called, "Designing Units and Lessons" at: http://ngss.nsta.org/designing-units-and-lessons.aspx It explains the 5 Es there.
From there, it leads you to several other helpful spots (scroll to the bottom of the page): Planning an NGSS Curriculum, Selecting Learning Materials, and Conducting Assessments.
Perhaps others will chime in to provide some ideas for your other questions.
