Provide Feedback on the DRAFT NGSS PEEC- Alignment Document

The first draft of the NGSS Primary Evaluation of Essential Criteria for Alignment (PEEC-Alignment) is now available for review and feedback. This should be a useful tool for reviewing instructional materials and for modifying and creating instructional materials.

Click HERE to review the PEEC-Alignment document as a PDF or Word document. Then you can provide feedback HERE by July 1, 2015.

Here is a piece of text from the front matter of the document on p. 2:

First, a few words about PEEC-Alignment. The acronym is intentionally a play on words. In one sense, the evaluation is a peek, or a quick look at a program. In another sense, this document describes a peak, the highest point, principal, or most important features of NGSS-aligned programs. PEEC-Alignment is designed to achieve both of these important goals.

Science & Minigolf

I was reading the Science Cheerleader’s blog and thought I would share this too. NPR’s Science Friday recently featured an unusual Mini Golf Park where kids play miniature gold and learn scientific concepts. Sounds like I need to take a trip to New York. See the embedded clip below and visit the NPR article.
