Science Framework Seen as Valued Resource for Educators

The National Research Council’s Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas is being highlighted as a resource to help educators think through implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards.,  The framework, created in 2011 by an 18-member panel of experts in science and science education served as a blueprint for the standards and provides an “accessible narrative” that can support curriculum and assessment design as well as local implementation of the standards.
