Next Generation Science Standards -
STOM Recommendation for Adoption
STOM supports learning expectations that reflect the most current research on student learning within the field of science. STOM believes they should be written as rigorous performance expectations that challenge students to use, apply, and critically think about science rather than memorize content. STOM also believes that many educators should be involved in the development of new science standards. It is the position of STOM that the Next Generation Science Standards, which were developed and vetted by over 10,000 science educators, be used to educate and excite Missouri students. The Next Generation Science Standards provide the appropriate content, framework, and integration that will allow our students to develop into citizens capable of understanding and evaluating the world and information around them.
STOM strongly encourages school districts to adopt the Next Generation Science Standards and the organization is here to help those districts with the professional development, advice, and support to develop a meaningful and high-quality K-12 Science Program.
