2 Throughout the years, ExploraVision has reached thousands of students across the United States and Canada. This program has positively impacted young people by broadening their definition of science and motivating students to use their imagination to the best of their abilities. Young people have vivid imaginations, and ExploraVision harnesses that power and challenges students to bring that vision to life. Toshiba’s investment in ExploraVision means that thousands of students are introduced to science in a different way. New for 2013, ExploraVision is now more closely aligned with the NRC Framework for K-12 Science Education! STUDENTS COMPETING FOR PRIZES GREAT TEACHER PRIZES TOO! REGISTER TODAY AND LEARN MORE BY VISITING: EXPLORAVISION.ORG OR ERIC CROSSLEY AT: COMPETITION DEADLINE: JANURARY 31, 2013 ***OVER $2 4 0,000 IN PRIZES***

13 NSTA’s Role in NGSS

14 NGSS Second Public Draft Released yesterday, January 8 Unprecedented to have such widespread involvement of so many states and stakeholders—including classroom teachers—involved in science standards development NGSS will have a profound influence on curriculum, assessment, and teacher professional development in the years ahead NSTA encourages all teachers to review the NGSS draft and provide feedback to Achieve by January 29

15 NSTA role with the NGSS One of four partners in a state-led process, including The National Academies of Science (the NRC) Achieve Inc. National Science Teachers Association American Association for the Advancement of Science Provided guidance and reviews directly to the National Research Council and Achieve Provided names of teachers for writers on the writing teams

16 NGSS Lead State Partners

17 NSTA Outreach Inform science education community about the NGSS draft Encourage science educators to have a voice by engaging in the review process Help educators study and learn more about the document

18 To what extent were you involved in reviewing the May Draft of NGSS? A.I didn’t see the May Draft. B.I looked at the May Draft, but I didn’t send in comments. C.I reviewed the May Draft, and sent in comments. D.I was a member of a review team for the May Draft. E.I coordinated a review team for the May Draft.

24 Building on the Past; Preparing for the Future 7/2011 – March / / s 1990s-2009 Phase IIPhase I 24

25 What’s Different About the Next Generation Science Standards? 25

26 Conceptual Shifts in the NGSS 1.K-12 Science Education Should Reflect the Interconnected Nature of Science as it is Practiced and Experienced in the Real World. 2.The Next Generation Science Standards are student performance expectations – NOT curriculum. 3.The science concepts build coherently from K The NGSS Focus on Deeper Understanding of Content as well as Application of Content. 5.Science and Engineering are Integrated in the NGSS from K–12. 6.The NGSS and Common Core State Standards ( English Language Arts and Mathematics) are Aligned. 26

27 Three Dimensions Intertwined The NGSS are written as Performance Expectations NGSS will require contextual application of the three dimensions by students. 27

28 NGSS Public Release II/Timeline Goal: To distribute and receive feedback from interested stakeholders and continue the transparent development process to enable states to prepare for consideration of NGSS  The standards opens for review at 3:00 p.m. EST on January 8,  The review period will end on January 29,  The standards and the survey can be accessed at  Final Release – March of

29 Feedback Data from the May 2012 NGSS Public Draft 29

30 General Feedback on the May Draft, September Draft, and CCR Review Overall, very positive. 30

31  Pedagogical Vision  Architecture, including integration of the three dimensions  Rigor required by the NGSS at all grades  Web presentation and interactivity  NGSS are well structured and clear about expectations Clarification statements and assessment boundaries support additional clarity  Intentional connections to other NGSS and math and ELA CCSS General Strengths of the Drafts 31

32 General Areas for Improvement  Clarity of Some Language  Integration of Critical Areas in Some Standards Mathematics, engineering, crosscutting concepts  Scope of Required Content  Confusion about the role of standards versus curriculum  Concern about the consistency of organization of the standards versus Framework in terms of coding and arrangement  Concern about the amount of support that will be needed for implementation of the standards Professional Development, materials, administrator support and understanding, future assessments 32

33 Changes Since May  95% of the Performance Expectations have been rewritten based on feedback, with more specific and consistent language used  A review focused on college- and career-readiness resulted in the removal of some content  Some content shifted grade levels in elementary  Engineering has been better integrated into the traditional science disciplines  More math expectations have been added to the performance expectations  “Nature of science” concepts have been highlighted throughout the document  The Science and Engineering Practices matrix has been revised to provide more clarity 33

34 New Content  Appendices have been added to support the NGSS and in response to feedback  Appendix A – Conceptual Shifts  Appendix B – Responses to May Public Feedback  Appendix C – College and Career Readiness  Appendix D – All Standards, All Students  Appendix E – Disciplinary Core Idea Progressions in the NGSS  Appendix F – Science and Engineering Practices in the NGSS  Appendix G – Crosscutting Concepts in the NGSS  Appendix H – Nature of Science  Appendix I – Engineering Design, Technology, and the Applications of Science in the NGSS  Appendix J – Model Course Mapping in Middle and High School  Appendix K – Connections to Common Core State Standards in Mathematics 34

35 Topic Arrangement Coding 35

36 Other Supplementary Documents for NGSS Public Release II  Supplementary Documents and Materials Available at nextgenscience.org  Why Standards Matter?  How to Read the NGSS  How to Complete the NGSS Survey  Glossary of Terms  Additional Aspects of the NGSS Public Release II  More flexibility of viewing of the standards has been provided with two official arrangements of the performance expectations: by topics and by DCI  Additional flexibility was added to the website views of standards, allowing users to turn off pop up” description boxes  The public feedback survey has been completed revised 36
