Here are a couple of recent blog posts on the Next Generation Science Standards:
1. Dr. Francis Eberle wrote an article titled Making the Most of the NGSS which outlines 9 recommendations regarding the writing of the NGSS.
2. On Edutopia, Eric Brunsell just posted an article titled Coming Soon to a School Near You: New Science Standards which concisely describes the 2 part development process and also gives an overview of the Framework.
Both of these posts could be useful for communicating the NGSS to teachers, administrators, district office staff, the community, etc.
