Today’s Objectives

  • Participants will:

  • Be able to read and interpret pages of the NGSS

  • Identify the three dimensions of the NGSS

  • Analyze different Performance Expectations of the NGSS

  • Explore the information contained within each appendix of the NGSS

Rate your familiarity with ngss
Rate Your Familiarity with NGSS

  • Choose one of the following that best describes your familiarity with the NGSS and explain your choice:

  • I know there are new science standards

  • Know a little about them/I know they have different colored sections on the paper

  • Read some of the framework/standards

  • I have a real deep understanding of standards their meaning and the content taught

  • I could lead a PD or group planning on the standards.


Why ngss

  • It has been nearly 15 years since the National Research Council and the American Association for Advancement in Science produced the documents on which most state standards are based.

The new standards are going to get children ready for a STEM workforce by integrating the three dimensions of the framework.

1/2010 - 7/2011

Kentucky was one of the 26 Lead States to help with the development of The Next Generation Science Standards

Ngss framework
NGSS Framework development of The Next Generation Science Standards


    1. Practices

    2. Crosscutting Concepts

    3. Disciplinary Core Ideas

Performance expectations
Performance Expectations development of The Next Generation Science Standards

  • Integrate practices, core ideas and Crosscutting Concepts

  • Statements of what is to be assessed

  • NOT lesson plans

  • State what students should be able to do at the end of instruction

  • Organized by Topic and DCI

There is also a FREE NGSS App

Three Dimensions Intertwined Standards?

  • The NGSS are written as Performance Expectations

  • NGSS will require contextual application of the three dimensions by students.

  • Focus is on how and why as well as what

Look at the handout that has the three dimensions

Science and engineering practices
Science and Engineering Practices Standards?

1. Asking questions (science) and defining problems (engineering)

2. Developing and using models

  • Planning and carrying out investigations

  • Analyzing and interpreting data

5. Using mathematics and computational thinking

6. Constructing explanations (science) and designing solutions (engineering)

7. Engaging in argument from evidence

8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

Crosscutting concepts
Crosscutting Concepts Standards?

  • Patterns

Activity Standards?

  • Use the activity handout and the information from the next few slides to demonstrate how the NGSS is presented within the Framework.

  • Open to any content page within the KCAS for Science

    What’s In The Box?

Inside the NGSS Box

Take a look at the ngss website www nextgenscience org
Take a look at the NGSS website: Standards?

Take a few minutes to examine the three dimensions of the framework.

Look through each appendix

Are there any questions about the website or anything we have discussed so far?

Shifts in the ngss

Appendix A Standards?

Conceptual Shifts

Shifts in theNGSS

  • Experiences in The Real World

  • Performance Expectations not Curriculum

  • Build Coherently

  • Deeper understanding and Application of content

  • Integration of Science and Technology

  • College, Career and Citizenship

  • Aligned with ELA and Math (Venn Diagram)

Ngss scavenger hunt
NGSS Scavenger Hunt Standards?

  • Work with the people at your table to complete the front side of the handout

  • The back side is a take home assignment that is used with the K – 12 Progression sheet

Speed bumps on the road to ngss
Speed Bumps on The Road to NGSS Standards?

  • Discuss with your group what we have done so far today and write down what you think the speed bumps will be on the back of your previous activity sheet.
