Putting today’s science standards into practice creates a unique set of challenges for leaders. Standards are connected to every other component of a school system — instructional materials, assessments, professional learning, course sequencing and instructional time, leadership structures, budget, internal and community communication, and external partnerships — not to mention student engagement, equity, and success.
NextGenScience helps build the capacity of science leaders to develop sustainable strategies and networks focused on high-impact, research-based strategies. Establishing a leadership team and coherent plan are crucial to a successful transition to this new way of teaching and learning science.
