Transcript of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Presentation

Introduction: Next Generation Science Standards
Three Dimensions
NGSS and Engineering Practices
3. Disciplinary Core Ideas
Cross Cutting Concepts
2. Crosscutting Concepts
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Presentation
The NGSS incorporate research findings for teaching and learning science, and include information that every student should know about science upon graduation.
1. Practice
Practices describe scientists' behavior as they investigate and attempt to explain the world around them.
Major concepts need to be made explicit for students as they enable them to interrelate knowledge in different domains.
The focal points of curriculum should be in the most important aspects of science.
Patterns - similarity and diversity
Cause and effect
Scale, Proportion and Quantity
Systems and system models
Energy and Matter
Structure and Function
Stability and Change
Why do we need NGSS?
Reduction of the United States' competitive economic edge

Lagging achievement of U.S. students

Essential preparation for all careers in the modern workforce

Scientific and technological literacy for an educated society

Evidence statements

Sample Assessment Tasks

Future Resources
Resources for teaching NGSS
By implementing NGSS in the classroom, teachers can be sure that they are giving students an education that can prepare them for a future of scientific literacy.
Cross Cutting Concepts is one of the new areas of focus for science standards, and helps students develop a way of thinking about different domains of science.
Science and engineering practices are another new addition to science standards that help students develop scientific literacy for real world applications.
NGSS was developed for several reasons:
Works Cited:
Next Generation Science Standards: For states, by states. (2015). Retrieved from:

A way of linking different domains of science including:
Each performance expectation should include relevant science or engineering practices with a core disciplinary idea and cross cutting concept
Future assessments will measure students' ability to use scientific knowledge along with inquiry and practice to solve real world problems.
There are 8 practice for science and engineering
1. Asking questions and defining problems
2. Developing and using models
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
6. Constructing explanations and designing solutions
7. Engaging in argument from evidence
8. Obtaining, evaluating and communicating information
This presentation will focus specifically on the Science and Engineering Practices and Cross Cutting Concepts pieces of the NGSS
