News from the National Science Teachers Association:
Because the Next Generation Science Standards mark a significant shift in how science is both taught and learned, parents may be curious as to what their children's classrooms will look like. To help parents better understand the importance of standards and the role they play in education, NSTA has developed a short Q&A for parents. This tool explains what standards are in general and why the NGSS in particular are so critical for developing college and career readiness in the sciences. The Q&A is a great resource for science teachers, principals, and other administrators to distribute to and discuss with parents. Find this and other great NGSS resources at the NGSS@NSTA Hub.
