OVERVIEW: The NGSS Lesson Screener is a tool designed for quickly reviewing a science learning sequence to see if the design is 3 Dimensional and on the road to meeting the expectations and shifts of the NGSS. This tool might also be useful to use prior to the more extensive NGSS EQuIP Rubric.
PURPOSE: As many of us work to build and modify K-12 science lessons and units that align to the NGSS- the NGSS Lesson Screener can be used by teams and professional development providers to make sure that work is on the right track. The NGSS Lesson Screener is designed to evaluate similar criteria to the NGSS EQuIP Rubric but is more brief and looks to be more flexible.
AUDIENCE: K-12 teachers of science, science teacher leaders, administrators, curriculum directors, PD providers, others
