NGSS Cheat Sheet and Placemat

ImageAs we begin to design and deliver professional development on the Next Generation Science Standards I’m hoping that we will be able to share tools and resources. I’ve accumulated several tools from lots of smart folks and will be posting some in the coming weeks.

A couple of my favorites were developed by the regional science coordinators who work for the Washington State ESDs. These tools are:

– The NGSS “cheat sheet” a 2-sided color key to the 3 dimensions of the NGSS and the abbreviations.

– The NGSS placemat– an 11x 17 colorful sheet for deconstructing a performance expectation of the NGSS during a PD session.

I have used both of these tools with multiple K-12 teachers during initial professional development on the structure of the NGSS
