The Next Generation Science Standards represent an exciting shift in science education. The biggest shift is the importance of framing classroom experiences around 3 Dimensional learning. Grounded in content defined by the Disciplinary Core Ideas, the NGSS provide for a coherent experience across grade levels. Scientific Practices become habits of mind, embedded in all we do scientifically. Overarching Cross Cutting Concepts provide a lens to experience the concepts and provide a conduit to apply scientific ideas to other disciplines and concepts.
