NGSS Implementation: MUSINGS

Hello Everyone!

Just wanted to share a few powerful quotes as I read from the "Discover the NGSS" text:

"What do you think would happen if students were not exposed to content in a sequential progression . . . ? "

"Omitting content at any grade level or band will impact the success of students in understanding the core ideas."

". . . students can only fully understand the DCI by engaging in the practices . . . the practices are incomplete without being used in onnection with the investigation and explanation of content."

What powerful statements and daunting mandates for us as educators.
