  • The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)--now in development-will be based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education released by the National Research Council last summer. The NGSS will use four key ideas from the Framework: (1) a limited number of core ideas of science, (2) the integration or coupling of core ideas and scientific and engineering practices, (3) crosscutting concepts, and (4) the development of the core ideas, scientific practices, and crosscutting concepts over time. In the… CONTINUE READING
