goal of ngss
Goal of NGSS

Develop standards that will be rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.

performance expectations for ngss
Performance Expectations for NGSS

Developed to support 4 Disciplinary Core Ideas

Arranged in

    • K-5 grade specific
    • 6-8 grade span*
    • 9-12 grade span

Key distinctions from prior standards:

  • Performance Expectations
  • Foundations based on the Three Dimensions
  • Coherence within NGSS and with CCSS

*California modified grade 6-8 to grade specific performance expectations based on integrated topics defined by NGSS

Performance Expectation
  • What students should know and be able to do after instruction
  • Communicates a “big idea”
  • Includes clarification statements and assessment boundary statements

  • Science & Engineering Practices for the performance expectation and connections to Nature of Science
  • Disciplinary Core Ideas for all students to understand
  • Crosscutting Concepts and connections to Nature of Science provides a big picture for emphasis

Scientific and Engineering Practices

  • Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
  • Developing and using models
  • Planning and carrying out investigations
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
  • Using mathematics and computational thinking
  • Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
  • Engaging in argument from evidence
  • Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
crosscutting concepts
Crosscutting Concepts
  • Patterns, similarity, and diversity
  • Cause and effect
  • Scale, proportion, and quantity
  • Systems and system models
  • Energy and matter
  • Structure and function
  • Stability and change

MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.

PRACTICE: Develop a model to predicts and/or describe phenomena

CCC: Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural or designed systems.

DCI: Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other. In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations. The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using these models of matter. The term “heat” as used in everyday language refers both to thermal motion (the motion of atoms or molecules within a substance) and radiation (particularly infrared and light). In science, heat is used only for this second meaning: it refers to energy transferred when two objects or systems are at different temperatures. The relationship between the temperature and the total energy of a system depends on the types, states, and amounts of matter present.

prepare for the ngss
Prepare for the NGSS
  • Integrate CCSS ELA and Math with science curriculum
  • Implement the Scientific and Engineering Practices into the curriculum
  • Develop Engineering Lessons and Project Based Learning opportunities
  • Explore the Crosscutting Concepts and incorporate them into your units
  • Develop hands-on science units with essential questions that incorporate the NGSS Storylines
