Next Generation Science Standards identifies the science all K-12 students should know. These new standards are based on the National Research Council’s A Framework for K-12 Science Education. The National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Achieve have partnered to create standards through a collaborative state-led process. The standards are rich in content and practice and arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.
The print version of Next Generation Science Standards complements the nextgenscience.org website and:
- Provides an authoritative offline reference to the standards when creating lesson plans
- Arranged by grade level and by core discipline, making information quick and easy to find
- Printed in full color with a lay-flat spiral binding
- Allows for bookmarking, highlighting, and annotating
