Next Generation Science Standards
Over a period of years, several teachers have taken part in a cohort studying the Next Generation Science Standards Framework book. The purpose of the book study is to take not only an in-depth look at why the science standards have changed but also to understand what "good" science instruction should look like.
In addition to the staff shown in the chart (above right) another Waterloo staff member, Courtney Shoemaker, is currently involved in the NGSS Framework Book Study in the Spring of 2016.
