High-quality science instructional materials are a necessary component of the successful transition to today’s science standards. NextGenScience aims to create a shared vision and common understanding about what design for today’s science standards means among educators and developers.
Designing instructional materials that prepare students to meet the goals of today’s science standards is complex but critical work. Developed in close collaboration with teachers, state education leaders, and science education researchers, our suite of tools* surfaces the most important design features of high-quality materials and provides feedback to developers on how to improve their materials.
We provide review services using the following tools:
We also work with states and districts to support their instructional materials selection processes. Learn more about that work.
* The tools were developed when the NextGenScience team was a part of Achieve.
