Concerned about how to implement the new Next Generation Science Standards? Fear not! Purchase this standard breakdown that includes:
-Rubric for a Summative Assessment
-Three Formative Assessment ideas!!!
-Clarification Statement (courtesy of NGSS website)
-Background knowledge list
The NGSS are very difficult to understand but this standard breakdown clears up the standard itself and the formative and summative assessments needed to determine whether students have mastered the standard!
I use this breakdown with my students in their Interactive Notebooks when we begin a new standard and it really helps deepen their understanding of what they will be required to know/do in order to master the standard. They love it and it sets the tone for the unit!
