If you are looking to align your instructional practices to support the Next Generation Science Standards, then you should strongly consider The Practice of NGSS.
The Practice of NGSSThe Practice of NGSS balances depth and breadth, providing holistic awareness of three-dimensional learning along with strategies around specific aspects of the NGSS that teachers can take into the classroom immediately. We have developed K-2, 3-5, and 6-12 variants to focus on age-appropriate needs. The Practice of NGSS consists of a series of workshops that lead into shorter follow-up sessions that focus on revising and studying lessons to support the new standards.
