  • 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

a new vision of science learning that leads to a new vision of teaching
P-12 MSOU of PIMSERA New Vision of Science Learning that Leads to a New Vision of Teaching

The framework is designed to help realize a vision for education in the sciences and engineering in which students, over multiple years of school, actively engage in science and engineering practices and apply crosscutting concepts to deepen their understanding of the core ideas in these fields.

the trail of two standards
The Trail of Two Standards
  • Read the two standards at your table (front and back)
  • Make sure to note the following:
    • What is different about the two standards
    • What are the students doing in each Standard
    • What instructional shifts do you note in each
    • What would you expect as the overall instructional look of the classroom if you were observing

Discuss what you have written down on your self- reflection and compare your findings with the people at your table.

Summarize your tables findings and prepare to share out.

  • “…students cannot fully understand scientific and engineering ideas without engaging in the practices of inquiry and the discourses by which such ideas are developed and refined. At the same time, they cannot learn or show competence in practices except in the context of specific content.”
    • A Framework for K-12 Science Education, pg. 218

Three Dimensions Intertwined

  • 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
standards nexus of 3 dimensions
P-12 MSOU of PIMSERStandards: Nexus of 3 Dimensions

Crosscutting Concepts

  • Not separate treatment of “content” and “inquiry” (No “Chapter 1”)
  • Curriculum and instruction needs to do more than present and assess scientific ideas – they need to involve learners in using scientific practices to develop and apply the scientific ideas.




science and engineering practices
P-12 MSOU of PIMSERScience and Engineering Practices

Guiding Principles

  • Students in K-12 should engage in all of the eight practices over each grade band.
  • Practices grow in complexity and sophistication across the grades.
  • Each practice may reflect science or engineering.
  • Practices represent what students are expected to do, and are not teaching methods or curriculum.
  • The eight practices are not separate; they intentionally overlap and interconnect.
  • Performance expectations focus on some but not all capabilities associated with a practice.
science and engineering practices1
P-12 MSOU of PIMSERScience and Engineering Practices

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


Coherent Science Instruction

The framework is designed to help realize a vision for education in the sciences and engineering in which students, over multiple years of school, actively engage in scientific and engineering practices and apply crosscutting concepts to deepen their understanding of the core ideas in these fields.

take home messages
P-12 MSOU of PIMSER Take Home Messages
  • According to the intent of the Framework, the practices are not to be done in isolation.
  • The practices are essential for learning the content.
  • We won’t have to start from scratch on everything!
  • Learning experiences should have the student doing the doing (hands-on and minds-on).

Take Home Messages 2
  • Slow and steady
  • 2013-2014 is not an “official” implementation year it is a trial year…..learn and get feet wet
  • Conversations will take place all year long and will encompass topics such as, curriculum mapping, performance based instruction, etc.
  • Begin to use the practices to implement core content in classroom activities

4 Questions…Choose 2
  • What work in your district led to instructional shifts and what evidence do you have of impact on student learning?
  • What capacity did you build in the leadership networks to impact future work?
  • What support and resources are needed for continued effective implementation of the work (LDC/MDC/PGES/NGSS)?
  • How do you differentiate to meet the needs of all stakeholders?
