Conceptual Framework for New Science Education Standards Committee Members
Final Draft Released in 2011
Public draft in 2010
Children are born investigators
Depth over breadth
--focus on core ideas and practices
Connecting to students' interests is essential
Promoting equity is essential for science and society
Understanding builds over time
1. Asking questions and defining problems
What is a
"Disciplinary Core Idea?"
Has broad importance across multiple science or engineering disciplines or is a key organizing concept of a single discipline
Provides a key tool for understanding or investigating more complex ideas and solving problems
Relates to the interests and life experiences of students or can be connected to societal or personal concerns that require scientific or technical knowledge
Is teachable and learnable over multiple grades at increasing levels of depth and sophistication
Physical Science
PS4--Waves and their applications in technologies for information transfer
Life Science
PS1--Matter and its interactions
PS2--Motion and stability:
Forces and interactions
LS1--From molecules to organisms:
Structures and processes
LS2--Ecosystems: Interactions, energy, and dynamics
LS3--Heredity: Inheritance and variation of traits
LS4--Biological evolution:
Unity and diversity
Earth and
Space Sciences
ESS3--Earth and human activity
ESS2--Earth’s systems
ESS1--Earth’s place in the universe
Engineering, Technology
and Applications of Science
ETS1 Engineering design

ETS2 Links among engineering,
science and society
Engaging in Argument from Evidence
Identify flaws in their own arguments and modify and improve them in response to criticism.
Construct a scientific argument showing how data support a claim.
National Research Council--
committee to take on the task of building on past efforts
to renew our vision for science education
...these are goals for all of the nation’s students...
Too often, standards are...
throughout their lives.
"Students should recognize that our current scientific understanding of the world is the result of hundreds of years of creative human endeavor."
...not just those who pursue higher education or careers in science, engineering, or technology.
loooong lists of
a m-i-l-e w-i-d-e
Not only does this approach alienate young people
and an inch deep.
...and little sense of the inherent logic and consistency of science
...it neglects the need for students to engage in DOING science and engineering...
w l e
...it leaves our students with
By the end of the 12th grade, students should have
sufficient knowledge of science and engineering
to engage in public discussions on science-related issues,
to be critical consumers of scientific information related to their everyday lives,
and to be able to continue to learn about science
Science and Engineering Practices
8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
7. Engaging in argument from evidence
6. Constructing explanations and designing solutions
5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
2. Developing and using models
7. Stability and change
6. Structure and function
5. Energy and matter
4. Systems and system models
3. Scale, proportion, and quantity
2. Cause and effect
Crosscutting Concepts

Standards Implementation

The Standards
K-12 Framework
Science Education
Other Districts
Informal Science educators
Business and Industry
Implementation Planning
Critical Stakeholders?
Key Messages?
Course Mapping?
Reading the standards
Standards to curriculum
Curriculum to Lesson plans
What is holding you back from getting there?
How can we use the implementation of the new Kansas Science standards to help us achieve our vision?
Vision for Science Education
Why do you teach science to your students? What do you hope they learn?
How will you know if you've achieved your vision?
How Does your unit connect to your vision?
Choose 2-4 PEs that you see as linked.
Bundling Performance Expectations
2. Identify where students are DOING the practices
1. Where are students DOING the practices?
2. Where are the student performances?

Science and engineering Practices
student performances
Grade Level
Content focus
Conceptual Progressions Model
Science Domains Model
Modified Science Domains Model
Split your cards into three "courses"
After you are satisfied with your sorting ,
make 3 columns on your paper
list the codes for the core ideas in each course.
Designate one person to stay at your table and explain your chart while the others quickly check out other ideas
be able to explain why they are arranged this way
Course Mapping
Tenacious Patience
What is holding us back from getting there?
How do the NGSS fit into our overall STEM/science education system?
How do they connect with the economic development and growth agenda for your community?
Why and how are NGSS essential to our success?
Vision for Science Education
What are we trying to do for our students and why?
How will we know when we've achieved our vision?
pg 22-27

Why is it important to achieve this vision for your students?

On one of the posters, write your name, what you teach, and one question you have about KCCRSS/NGSS

Get ready for three mind-blowing days as this year’s Excellence in Math and Science
Teaching Conference takes on a whole new format! The best math and science teachers
in the state will come together to dig into the standards, refresh and retool current practices
and ultimately become leaders for change in the classroom.
Create a model to explain this phenomenon
--label all of the components of the system
--no sciency words
what causes a plunger to stick to the surface?
--based on your model, write a brief explanation of the phenomenon
--support your explanation with evidence

behave like scientists and engineers...
...discover and apply scientific knowledge...
...and consciously use strategies that build connections
--between their science knowledge and the world around them
--between different areas of science knowledge
