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

NGSS Claims
By Association
Designed for the NGSS
“These instructional materials are research-based.”
“The lessons are based on three-dimensional teaching and learning.”
“Students engage in phenomenon-based inquiry.”
“The units provide NGSS instruction.”
Example buzzword claims:
Verifying buzzword claims
Does their definition match yours?
By Association
Designed for the NGSS
Where's the evidence?
Looking for NGSS-focused Instructional Materials?
“NGSS authors are our content experts.”

“The advisory committee for [this product] included [well known scholar], who was on the NGSS writing team.”

Example authority claims:
Verifying authority claims
What is the specific, relevant expertise of the person that is referenced?
What role did they have in the development of the materials?
By Association
[This product uses the three NGSS colors prominently on promotional materials]
“[This product] measures student learning with next gen assessments.”
“[This product] helps teachers transition to the NGSS.”

Example "by association" claims:
Verifying "by association" claims

Verifying designed for the NGSS claims
Look for/ask for a description of how the materials were designed for the NGSS.
Compare the description to the NGSS Innovations to make sure they line up with the intent of the standards
Verify that the materials match up with the claim.
Does the claim include a description of correlation with all three dimensions of the standards?
Verifying EQuIP claims
