National Standards Correlation

This resource has 21 correlations with the National Standards.  

This resource has 21 correlations with the National Standards.  

  • Physical Science
    • Chemical Reactions
      • Chemical reactions occur all around us, for example in health care, cooking, cosmetics, and automobiles. (9-12)
      • Light can initiate many chemical reactions such as photosynthesis and the evolution of urban smog. (9-12)
  • Life Science
    • Organisms and environments
      • Humans depend on their natural and constructed environments. Humans change environments in ways that can be either beneficial or detrimental for themselves and other organisms.
  • Earth Science
    • Structure of the earth system
      • The atmosphere is a mixture of nitrogen, oxygen, and trace gases that include water vapor. (5-8)
      • The atmosphere has different properties at different elevations. (5-8)
  • Science in Personal and Social Perspectives
    • Personal health
      • Maintaining environmental health involves establishing or monitoring quality standards related to use of soil, water, and air.
    • Changes in environments
      • Pollution is a change in the environment that can influence the health, survival, or activities of organisms, including humans.
      • Some environmental changes occur slowly, and others occur rapidly.
      • Students should understand the different consequences of changing environments in small increments over long periods as compared with changing environments in large increments over short periods.
    • Natural and human-induced hazards
      • Pollutants from human activities are released into the atmosphere. (Air Pollution) (9-12)
      • Thermal inversions trap the pollutants in the atmosphere near the Earth's surface. (9-12)
  • Context of Professional Development
    • Learning Communities
      • Provide regular, frequent opportunities for individual and collegial examination and reflection on classroom and institutional practice. (NSES)
  • Process Standards for Professional Development
    • Research-Based
      • Address teachers' needs as learners and build on their current knowledge of science content, teaching, and learning. (NSES)
    • Design
      • Introduce teachers to scientific literature, media, and technological resources that expand their science knowledge and their ability to access further knowledge. (NSES)
      • Address issues, events, problems, or topics significant in science and of interest to participants. (NSES)
    • Learning
      • Build on the teacher's current science understanding, ability, and attitudes. (NSES)
    • Collaboration
      • Encourage and support teachers in efforts to collaborate. (NSES)
  • Teaching Standards
    • Teachers of science plan an inquiry-based science program for their students.
      • Select science content and adapt and design curricula to meet the interests, knowledge, understanding, abilities, and experiences of students.
      • Select teaching and assessment strategies that support the development of student understanding and nurture a community of science learners.
      • Work together as colleagues within and across disciplines and grade levels.
    • Teachers of science actively participate in the ongoing planning and development of the school science program.
      • Plan and develop the school science program.
