Why now the opportunity
Why now? The opportunity

  • Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts - so why not science

  • Race to the Top (STEM invited priority, assessment consortia)

  • >15 years since NSES

  • and Benchmarks


Why nrc the opportunity
Why NRC? The opportunity

  • Convene experts in science

  • and science education

  • Process for consensus studies

  • Build on prior work - of NRC and others e.g. NSTA (Anchors), AAAS (Benchmarks, Maps)



Major components of the framework
Major components of the Framework

  • Vision of high quality science education

  • 3D: Cross-cutting concepts, practices, and core disciplinary ideas

  • Discussion of implementation issues

  • Suggestions for research and development


What is the framework s vision
What is the Framework’s vision?

  • “The Framework is designed to help realize a vision for science and engineering education in which students actively engage in science and engineering practices in order to deepen their understanding of core ideas in science over multiple years of school.” July draft, pg 6-1 emphasis added


Three dimensions
Three dimensions

  • Cross-cutting concepts

  • Scientific and engineering practices

  • Core disciplinary ideas

  • (PS, LS, ESS, ETAS)

  • What do these look like when integrated?


Criteria for core ideas and practices as per july draft
Criteria for Core Ideas and Practices – as per July draft
