Supplemental Curricula and Science and Engineering Practices in the Next Generation Science Standards: Developing a Tool for Identification and Alignment
It has been nearly twenty years since the last national science standards, the American Association for the Advancement of Science's (AAAS) Benchmarks for Science Literacy (Benchmarks) (AAAS, 1993) and the National Resource Council's National Science Education Standards (NSES) (NRC, 1996) were published. In 2013, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), developed using the latest research in science and science teaching, were released. Unlike previous standards, the NGSS are divided into three dimensions, (a) disciplinary core ideas (DCIs), which is the content, (b) crosscutting concepts ...
