Next Generation Science Standards: The Next Big Thing

Oregon was one of 26 states that contributed to the development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and the Oregon State Board of Education adopted the new standards in March 2014. Schools have until the 2018-19 school year until students will be tested on the NGSS. What changes will these new science standards bring? Where do the NGSS intersect with the Common Core? How can your library support students and educators in this transition? Review the PowerPoint presentation to learn the answers to these questions and more!
