Audio Review # 60 | The NSTA Learning Center is your go resources for the NGSS.

Overview

I am incredibly excited about this resources.  If you are one of the schools who have adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) then you know that good resources that truly align to the curriculum are hard to find.  The NSTA learning center has published a series of webinars on the NGSS walking through each of the disciplinary core ideas, practices and cross cutting concepts as well as talking about the specifics of each of the grade level standards.  There are also lesson plans, professional materials and other resources to help you plan your science units.  There are several webinars each week but you can also access webinars that have already occurred by searching the archives.  If you are looking to grow professionally in science this is a great place to start.

Concerns

You can access most of the materials for free, but a membership to NSTA really helps.
