The framework is designed to help realize a vision for education in the sciences and engineering in which students, over multiple years of school, actively engage in science and engineering practices and apply crosscutting concepts to deepen their understanding of the core ideas in these fields. A Framework for K-12 Science Education p. 1-2 A New Vision of Science Learning that Leads to a New Vision of Teaching
Principles of the Framework Children are born investigators. Understanding builds over time. Science and Engineering require both knowledge and practice. Connecting to students’ interests and experiences is essential. Focusing on core ideas and practices. Promoting equity.
Lots of work completed, underway, and left to do Instruction Curricula Assessments Professional Learning Resources
Summary: Shifts in the Teaching and Learning of Science Organize around limited number of core ideas. Favor depth and coherence over breadth of coverage. Core ideas need to be revisited in increasing depth, and sophistication across years. Focus needs to be on connections: – Careful construction of a storyline – helping learners build sophisticated ideas from simpler explanations, using evidence. – Connections between scientific disciplines, using powerful ideas (nature of matter, energy) across life, physical, and environmental sciences
1. Scientific and Engineering Practices Asking questions and defining problems Developing and using models Planning and carrying out investigations Analyzing and interpreting data Using mathematics and computational thinking Constructing explanations and designing solutions Engaging in arguments from evidence Obtaining, evaluating and communicating information 2. Crosscutting Concepts Patterns Cause and effect Scale proportions and quantity Systems and system models Energy and matter Structure and function Stability and change 3. Disciplinary Core Ideas Physical Sciences Life Sciences Earth and Space Sciences Engineering, Technology, and Application of Science NSTA 10/2011 START HERE
