NSTA, our national affiliate, now known as National Science Teaching Association, is a great resource for gaining proficiency at applying our new state standards. Although our state did not adopt NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) exactly as written, we did use the Framework for K-12 Science Education which guided NGSS. We adapted the standards to suit the needs of our students and teachers and we embrace the 3-Dimensional Teaching and Learning strategies for building science understanding and competencies needed for the twenty-first century.
