Next Generation Science Standards

Grades K - 8 textbooks aligned with NGSS???

Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:27 PM

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone learned of textbooks that are aligned with the NGSS standards that are available now with 2017-18 copyrights?  We are looking into series and have not found one that covers all the topics.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

McGraw Hill has a new modular K-5 and 6-8 program: Inspire Science. It was written specifically around NGSS. Page Keeley has written formative assessment probes for it and Dinah Zike has created Foldables. It is not a traditional print text, but a composite with much online material. I don't know details about the online structure. One of our districts looked into it but unfortunately Ohio has not adopted NGSS and so it did not align for us.
