pdf NSTA Reader's Guide to A Framework For K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas by Harold Pratt
NSTA Readers Guide to A Framework for K-12 Science Education is intended for many audiences—including science teachers, science supervisors, curriculum developers, administrators, and other stakeholders in science education—to help them better understand and effectively implement the new standards when they are released. As the introduction to the Framework states, “the framework is intended as a guide to standards developers as well as to curriculum designers, assessment developers, state and district science administrators, professionals responsible for science-teacher education, and science educators working in informal settings” (p. 1-1). Teachers play a key leadership role in each of these functions and will benefit from a deep understanding of the Framework as a stand-alone document and as a guide to the use of the forthcoming NGSS.
