Nebraska College and Career Ready Standards for Science (NCCRS-S) Resources
In 2018, Nebraska adopted new Framework-inspired standards for science called "Nebraska College and Career Ready Standards for Science" (NCCRS-S). These standards are based on the "Framework for K-12 Science Education" (link in resources) which was also the foundation for NGSS standards adopted by many states.
The Framework, and NGSS, is changing the way we teach science. However, it can be tricky for those who haven't spent much time studying it. NATS is here to help answer your questions and provide examples for you.
Articles will come out approximately once per week during the school year. However, if you have questions, feel free to contact the authors.
NATS members are encouraged to submit NGSS-related articles for inclusion.
