NSTA Vetted Resources
These classroom resources—over 800 lesson plans, book chapters, videos, simulations, and more—are
vetted by NSTA curators who recommend ways to adapt them to be more in line with the vision of the NGSS.
While these resources are not yet considered to be “fully aligned” to the NGSS, the curators provide
expert guidance on how to adapt them. Resources that are “fully aligned” should meet the rigorous criteria
of the EQuIP rubric, which means they are
three-dimensional in nature, have coherence across lessons and
units, provide a number of important instructional supports, and provide methods to monitor student
progress. Work is underway by Achieve to identify
exemplar lessons and resources that meet this vision.
Shared Community Resources
These classroom resources are provided by members of the science teaching community. NSTA invites
educators to upload and share their own outstanding lesson plans, units or other resources
that will help teachers work toward the vision of the NGSS. Read this FAQ on how to submit resources.
