New Report from the National Research Council on Implementing the Next Generation Science Standards

A recent report from the National Research Council (NRC) offers guidance to district and school leaders and teachers on necessary steps for putting the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into practice over the next decade and beyond.

The NGSS were developed by Acheive and a group of twenty-six states, and are based on the 2012 NRC publication A Framework for K-12 Science Education. Highlights include recommendations for teacher professional development, curriculum resources, assessment, collaboration, and more.
