Next Generation Science Standards Web Seminar Series
Through a collaborative, state-led process managed by Achieve, Next Generation Science
Standards (NGSS) are being developed that will be rich in content and practice,
arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students
an internationally benchmarked science education. The NGSS will be based on A Framework
for K–12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council.
The final document is scheduled to be completed in spring 2013.
NSTA continues to offer free web seminars to help science educators prepare for
implementation of NGSS.
After the release of the standards on April 9, 2013, NSTA presented a web seminar featuring an overview of the final document and next steps for implementation.
This web seminar series explores the crosscutting concepts to provide K-12 teachers with strategies for implementing NGSS in the classroom.
In this web seminar series, teachers can learn more about classroom application
of the practices described in A Framework for K-12 Science Education.
Educators, science coordinators, supervisors, state science supervisors, and others
can learn more about the second draft of NGSS through these web seminars.
NSTA presented a series of web seminars on the practices described in A Framework
for K-12 Science Education. Each web seminar focused on a particular practice
outlined in the Framework and provided information on:
- the key elements of the practice;
- how the practice is part of the broader set of practices that work together (and
how no practice is taught in isolation);
- how the practice can be used in combination with disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting
concepts to form performance expectations; and
- what the use of the practice really looks like in the classroom.
NSTA presented two web seminars focused on the first draft of NGSS.
