NGSS: Next Generation Science Standards
Converting your lessons to the 3-dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is hard. If you found it easy, you are probably not doing it correctly. The most common mistake is simply teaching the science concepts listed in the NGSS. That won't get you much further than where you already are.
This PowerPoint has been used to teach hundreds of teachers how to start shifting your lessons toward NGSS without being overwhelming. That last part is the key. There is so much to the NGSS that some teachers find they wish to just give up. That is not necessary! It can be done if you just pace yourself.
This resource comes with a 20 slide PowerPoint used to explain how to use a very simple NGSS lesson planning template. The last two pages has the template you can print off and use as often as you like. This will get you or your teachers well on the way to making meaningful shifts in learning....in a stress free way. Teachers do not need any more stress than they already have!
