5 An Absolute Must!!!
This book is absolutely amazing! The goal of this book is for you as a teacher to understand the NGSS and it succeeds in doing this. The e-book is exceptional. Not only does it have content that anticipates your questions and needs. The e-book is also full of videoes to see models of instructional material. As well as interactive labs that you can participate in to help your learning. This book is full of tools that can be used. It is can be read on almost any device so you can take it with you where ever you go. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to establish a firm foundation in their understanding of the NGSS.
