¬†Education Week‘s Liana Heiten provides an insightful look at status of the adoption and implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and offers up 8 things you should know about the standards, such as “the standards prize performance over memorization,” and “they include a lot of engineering and design.”

Even though there has been some¬†pushback regarding the standards’ language on climate change, she notes that “the train is chugging along on these science standards,” and that “More states will adopt, more teachers will implement, and there will be assessments soon enough.”
