Impact the CCSS/Florida Standards
have on the teaching of science
Supportive of science instruction through:
-Explicit language for literacy and mathematical practices
-Strengthened scientific investigation conclusion writing
(claim-evidence-reasoning)
-Increased emphasis on reading informational text K – 12
-Increased opportunity for interdisciplinary collaborations
Increased demand for teacher professional
development and informational text resources

Planning
-Aligns to national standards: CCSS and NGSS
-Incorporates national best practice trends: inquiry,
formative assessments, learning goals and progression
scales, technology integration
-Pacing Guides
Follows Bybee’s 5-E Model for inquiry
Emphasizes learning science by doing science through
laboratory and investigation activities
-In-classroom, outdoors, mobile labs, informal science
institutions, science fair
Stresses deep planning both horizontally (among grade
level peers) and vertically (across grade levels and
feeder patterns)
on strong collaborations with community
