For some the difference between standards, curriculum, and assessment can be hard to define.

Under the Next Generation Science Standards, curriculum plays a specific role in the mastery of standards and as a context for assessment.

In this free webinar, learn how to avoid the following pitfalls:

  • Curriculum that is loosely "aligned" but not well designed for NGSS mastery.
  • Asking "What standards are you teaching today?"
  • Phasing in content and practices.
  • Failing to coach teachers’ instructional practices.
  • Faux science and engineering tasks.
  • Failing to provide hands-on resources for students' science and engineering investigations.

Helpful tips and techniques you'll take away:

  • How to be a more critical consumer of next generation curriculum.
  • Tools to evaluate the next generation classrooms with fewer binary techniques.
  • Tools to evaluate your NGSS implementation on two levels: school and district.
