Next Generation Science Standards

 K-12 Framework and NGSS Primer

Next Generation Science Standards
 
This webinar series is aimed at supporting Kansas science educators as they begin to make the transition to the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Science.  An essential component of making this transition is understanding the vision of K-12 Framework for Science Education that was the foundation for building these standards.  This webinar series covers the high points of this vision and the structure of both the Framework and the NGSS.  On June 11, 2013, the NGSS were adopted in Kansas as the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Science.
