Translating the NGSS for Classroom Instruction (PDF e-book)

e-book (PDF)

With the release of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), you need a resource to help you answer pressing questions about how the standards fit with your curriculum, instruction, and assessments. Rodger W. Bybee has written Translating the NGSS for Classroom Instruction to provide essential guidance for everyone from teachers to school administrators to district and state science coordinators.
As practical as it is timely, this book includes an introduction to NGSS; examples of the standards translated to classroom instruction in elementary, middle, and high school; and assistance in adapting current units of instruction to align with the standards.
Bybee notes that the success of the new standards depends greatly on teachers’ ability to give students opportunities to learn the science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas of the NGSS. Reading this book is an important first step toward addressing educators’ questions and concerns about how to provide those opportunities and implement the standards.

Translating the NGSS for Classroom Instruction is an excellent resource because it demystifies the Next Generation Science Standards by breaking it down into understandable sections. The Author uses clear easy to follow language and gives practical examples to illustrate each aspect of the standards. I would recommend this book to individual teachers and to be used as a part of staff development.
