This article is a great short summary of the disciplinary core ideas in the physical sciences. These short articles are a great way to get an understanding of the pieces and parts of the NGSS without the length of the Framework.

This quote from the article summarizes its main content...."The Framework stresses that standards should emphasize all three dimensions by integrating scientific and engineering practices with crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas to develop performance expectations." This article emphasizes how core ideas are built upon as students age and how this knowledge leads students to understand the world around them and how things are interrelated
