Maine posts great input on NGSS

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the second and final public draft of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).  I am grateful to all of you for the priority you gave to this important effort.

Maine had great participation in the NGSS survey. According to stats released by Achieve, Maine was one of the most active states in the nation based on population.  Bravo!

Achieve expects to release the final document at the end of the first quarter.  Keep reading the Framework!

Also, look for future posts about:

  • NGSS and the Maine Cohort for Customized Learning
  • What the Physical Science Partnership Grant (U Maine RiSE Center) can tell us about implementing the vision of the Framework and the NGSS
  • Practices 5 and 6 and MLTI tools
  • Maine Curriculum Leaders and NGSS implementation
