Lewis Center for Educational Research - Teaching the Next Generations' Science
Start by "Like"-ing "NGSS Science Education at the Lewis Center for Educational Research" on Facebook and enter the conversation about NGSS.Next, (2/2016) consider using using one of these Cmaps to help you plan your courses, units and lesson plans: K-5 and 9-12. [Understand that these Cmaps are 'living' documents and are being updated weekly]. These resources were created using Cmap. A Cmap 'NGSS Planning Guide' does not exist (yet) for MS as the AAE/LCER adopted IAT's PBIS MS curriculum which comes 'pre-laid-out' and NGSS correlated for grades 6-8. We distributed the existing PBIS units at each grade level using this plan. Finally, (2014) consider using Symbaloo. MS Integrated Science Course 1 (6th Grade) [.doc] MS Integrated Science Course 2 (7th Grade) [.doc] MS Integrated Science Course 3 (8th Grade) [.doc] As CMaps. Step 5: After creating unit and lesson plans, consider how you will assess student learning. > In the mean time...

Science Education Safety - CSSS Science Education Safety The PDF files below are for science safety guides. The guides are free to schools to download. To read or print the files you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. The guides were published by Council of State Science Supervisors (CSSS) with support from the American Chemical Society, the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics and Science Education, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, DuPont Corporation, Intel Corporation, American Chemical Society, and the National Institutes of Health. You may print and distribute the booklet to teachers and other educators.

Community Resources for Science Through the years we have compiled and created a number of lesson planning tools for teachers taking our professional development workshops. We have assembled these tools here for you to use while planning your integrated, standards-based science lessons. If you find these tools useful, you might want to bring CRS in to do customized professional development with your school. Our workshops are fast-paced sessions for planning lessons, building skills, and using resources.

Next Generation: 5 Ways Science Classes Will Change The millions of K-12 students who have returned to school this fall may find dramatic changes waiting in their science classrooms. In this and coming school years, new national standards are set to transform science education in the United States. Released this April, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) draw on decades of education research, aiming to improve U.S. students' performance in STEM (science-technology-engineering-math) subjects. Twenty-six states worked together with national educational organizations to develop the voluntary guidelines.

Developing Assessments for the Next Generation Science Standards Overview Authors James W. Course: Next Generation Science Standards Michigan is one of 26 states leading the development and supporting the adoption and implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Working with partners from the Lead States, the National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Achieve, Inc., Michigan science and engineering educators have developed standards to define the science concepts and content students will need to learn from kindergarten through high school graduation. The development of the new science standards was a collaborative, state-led initiative coordinated by Achieve Inc. The process involved K-12 educators, state science officials, scientists, engineers, business leaders and university faculty members.
