Next Generation Science Standards Web Seminar Series
Twenty-six states led the development of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
through a collaborative process that included many teachers and stakeholders. NSTA
was a partner in the standards development process. Based on A Framework for K–12
Science Education, the NGSS incorporate three important dimensions—science
and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts. NSTA
continues to offer free web seminars to help science educators increase their understanding
of the standards and implement NGSS in the classroom. Access more NGSS@NSTA resources.
Review the general architecture of the Next Generation Science Standards
and the specific expectations for Kindergarten - Fifth Grade.
The NGSS@NSTA web seminar series continues this summer with programs on engineering
design, the nature of science, and the EQuIP rubric.
The NGSS@NSTA web seminar series continues with a special session on assessment,
followed by presentations focused on the life science disciplinary core ideas.
Educators learned about the disciplinary core ideas contained in NGSS by
participating in this series of web seminars.
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 on the crosscutting concepts provided K-12 teachers with
strategies for implementing NGSS in the classroom.
In this web seminar series, teachers learned about classroom application of the
practices described in A Framework for K-12 Science Education.
NSTA presented two web seminars about the second draft of NGSS.
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.
