NGSS – Generalizations About Curriculum
• K-5: More prescriptive at each grade level. Teachers more
directed what to teach each year providing basis for
subsequent years’ learning
• Middle School: District and faculty decide sequence. All
standards must be covered to provide basis for high school
standards.
• High School: District and faculty decide sequence. All
standards must be covered in the 3 years of required
science.
JoAnn Miller 2012
Modifying Curriculum
• FIRST REMEMBER: The Next Generation Science Standards
are not teaching boundaries, they are assessment boundaries.
They are the minimum of what we want Wisconsin students
to know and be able to do.
• Much of what is already being taught covers many of the
standards
• BE FLEXIBLE! You may have to give up or modify long-used
activities to better correlate to the new standards
• COLLABORATE! The standards are meant to vertically
integrate knowledge and skills so that students will transfer
learning from one grade or one class to the next. Their
knowledge and skills are meant to develop and expand
along a continuum from kindergarten through 12th grade.
JoAnn Miller 2012
First Steps
• Analyze current curriculum for cross-over from current state
standards to the NGSS
• Determine content and skills which need to be added or
augmented to meet the new standards
• Decide if the volume of material and activities which don’t fit
into the NGSS is practical within the school year timeframe
• Cull content and activities which don’t fit within the NGSS or
directly lead to student learning. Everything done in the
classroom should maximize student learning.
JoAnn Miller 2012
Continuing Steps
• REFLECTIVE TEACHING: Continue to re-analyze curriculum
choices as most effectively meeting standards AND leading to
maximized student learning
• COLLABORATION: Continue to work with colleagues to bounce
ideas off of, align activities, and coordinate standards
coverage
JoAnn Miller 2012
Timeframe for Change
• The teaching practices (active, inquiry-based learning and critical
thinking) of the Framework are sound pedagogy – START NOW!
• https://sites.google.com/a/dpi.wi.gov/science-dl/home/classroomcomponents
JoAnn Miller 2012
Timeframe for Change
• NGSS scheduled for
adoption at the beginning
of 2013
• Should be in place for
2013-14 school year
• Assessment to the NGSS
standards will follow in a
few years
• Teaching to the NGSS will
more than amply prepare
students for the interim
WKCE testing in science
JoAnn Miller 2012
Science Standards Coordinate with English
Language Arts and Mathematics Common
Core State Standards
“NGSS are aligned with the CCSS to ensure a symbiotic pace of
learning in all content areas. The three sets of standards overlap
in meaningful and substantive ways and offer an opportunity to
give all students equitable access to learning standards.”
