These classroom resources, including lesson plans, book chapters, videos, simulations, and more—are
compiled by NSTA curators. While these
resources are not yet considered to be “fully aligned” to the
NGSS, the curators provide 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.
Additional classroom resources are provided by other 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.
