The NGSS means changes in your content - discover how your content may change and where to go to identify what you should be teaching (and what you can leave out) in your middle and high school science class.
The NGSS balances content equally with skills (the Science and Engineering Practices) and an overall “scientific worldview” (the Crosscutting Concepts). So the standards themselves are written not as expressions of content but rather as Performance Expectations. Statements about what students must be able to do by the end of the grade or grade band.

This is so easy to use - we were able to align our lessons to the Next Generation Science Standards, Texas Essential Knowledge Skills and the Georgia Standards of Excellence and take the guesswork out of teaching the standards! #gettingnerdyscience #NGSS #TEKS #GSE

The NGSS were literally designed to CHANGE the way we teach science, so if you’re just shifting your content without shifting your strategies, you’re missing the point. So what does instruction look like in NGSS classrooms?
