Minnesota has demonstrated its commitment to high-quality science education by being a lead state partner (along with 25 other states) for the NGSS. To support Minnesota educators in transition process to the new NGSS-influenced standards, we’ve compiled a helpful list of resources to explore:
In July 2018, Edmentum releases the third course in our redesigned high school science series: Chemistry! Chemistry (v6.0) is built from the ground up to align to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Like all of our science courses, Chemistry emphasizes scientific inquiry; hands-on, minds-on investigating; and real-world relevance and application. Here’s what you need to know about our revamped Chemistry course.
Edmentum's new science courses thoughtfully incorporate STEM goals and methods into lessons, learning activities, and assessments to help students relate their learning experiences to the multidisciplinary reality of real-world problems and careers.
Common Core and state-specific next generation standards are placing much more emphasis on developing critical thinking and analysis skills by asking students to develop evidence-based persuasive and informational writing.
Project-based learning (PBL) takes an innovative approach emphasizing critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration to engage students and effectively teach next-generation standards. We have broken down the components of PBL to help educators apply it in their classroom or school.
