If you plan to host a review session before the release in January, we encourage you to use A K-12 Framework for Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas as a tool to facilitate understanding of the NGSS. There are numerous resources available on the CDEs NGSS web page and California Science Teachers Association (CSTA) NGSS web page to assist you with your efforts.
If you are hosting a review group meeting for the Next Generation Science Standards, please let CSTA know about it. We are creating a website where teachers can go to learn about a review group in their area. This information will be posted on CSTA websites and social media if you would like.
If you would like to keep your meeting private, please let us know about it anyway. CSTA has collaborated with the California Department of Education to develop a survey to be used at all group review meetings and we would like to know about your meeting so we can share that with you.
