    Cool. Hope this lays the foundations for a new student generation, a real innovative and learning generation.

    It is so exciting that Math and Science standards in US will will have everything organized properly at last! And it is great that both will teach modeling and practices 🙂 Are they going to assess Science also?

    60 videos O.o That's a lot!
    Looking forward to it though.

    Are there any videos about hormones in plants , on this channel ? 🙂

    Very fascinating endeavor Paul. So many questions pop up into my head as a teacher with this video and the standards in general. I'm interested in how you're going to approach some of the "standards of practice" that are a little bit more abstract and less concrete to assess. Look forward to collaborating over time on these concepts.

    Hi Paul, So glad you love the NGSS and Framework too! And thanks for making a nice distinction between what will be covered in the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core State Standards. Very important.

    Paul, how did you create these videos? I love them, and want to use them in the teacher professional development videos that I am designing for teachers!

    Good idea ! Nice educational concepts. Science teachers, esp curriculum planners should learn about these principles.

    Nice catch. You are completely correct.

    I use Keynote and Screenflow to create the videos. If you google "educational screencast" you should find a walkthrough I made that details my method. Thanks for watching.

    How do you see NGSS changing the order of classes or even the kind of classes required for HS graduation? I really feel like NGSS will make it easier to move towards a skills competency-based grading system versus the traditional A, B, C, etc.

    Hi Paul, Thanks for posting this valuable resource. Are you available to provide PD to teachers?

  21. Bozeman Science

    February 18, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    Unfortunately my job as a science teacher makes it difficult to attend conferences or put on PD during the school year. I have a limited number of personal days during the year and I try to spend most of them with family. Hopefully the virtual version of me will suffice.

    Paul: A long time ago I was authorized by Nasa in order to translate to spanish the programme "Toys in Space". Do you think there might be interest in order to do the same with this GRATE SERIES in order to increase the potencial users. I have a MSc in Nucealr Energy at MIT (81). Sincerely yours, Eduardo Testart

    Paul: great video series. I admire the time, effort, and energy that you put into this project. I especially like how they are in bite-size chunks for teachers. One point of clarification: the Framework actually only has 13 disciplinary core ideas. The 44 ideas that you've identified in the series are actually "component ideas" of the the 13 core ideas…just trying to make sure there is consistency in language…

    Paul your videos are very clear and makes understanding them much easier. I've gone to several workshops on NGSS and came out a little confused in the end. I've only seen 3 of the videos so far, and intend to watch them all. NYS wants feedback (a survey) so they can make final recommendations to the board. I think will help me a lot to complete the survey. Thank you.

    I am a 6th grade Science teacher in CA and we currently have a whole unit just on heat transfer: conduction, convection, radiation. I know these concepts are incorporated into bigger ideas in the NGSS, but wonder which topic these would fall under? I can't seem to really pinpoint it after reading over all the standards.

    Another important feature of the crosscutting concepts is that they are transferable outside of science as well. E.g. Cause and Effect is clearly a concept that is not restricted to science.

    The gigs up!, we all know you dropped the COMMON CORE NAME for this new one! (People go YouTube: Arkansas mother obliterates common core in 4 mins) because they got such of a negative response with common core they change the name too this, BUT IT'S THE SAME THING! (Now go watch that video I mentioned)

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and understanding with everyone.  Your videos have been extremely helpful to me in my own growth and for my students.  I teach middle school, 8th grade science. and your videos are on my go to list. Thank you much

    Hi Paul. Your series is helpful for us teachers! So we are moving away from the ¨Scientific Method¨ and using the 8 practices instead? 

  33. Jerry Harper

    Yes Paul, I found this to be very helpful.  The NGSS makes some sense to me now.. It also filled in a lot of gaps in my understanding of science.

    Wow, great Job Mr. Andersen, thank you for doing this, I am not an educator but volunteer my time in trying to get kids, inlcuding my own, inspired in all things related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics). I just started the process of trying to understand the NGSS and apply its concepts at home when conducting experiments with my children ages 7,8 & 8. Your videos will help out tremendously and I am looking forward to seeing the rest of them. Many thanks from a parent and fellow human being.

    did they change NGSS since this video was made? I don't see LS1 D for high school in the standards?

    Great Anderson. I am a lead inspector and auditor of schools. All your videos provide clear insight into a variety of science concpets.

    Hello good day! I'am a student from Philippines and we are studying about the design of science curriculum in US.
    I have some questions if you don't mind?
    first what are the benefits it can offer to your country?
    and what are its advantages with comparison to the previous science curriculum
    also, why do the government need to change the curriculum
    Thank You very much
    I'am hopping for your response

    Thanks Paul for your well-designed and publicly available content. I'd like to one day make content like yours for similar purposes, which is why I'd like to know what presentation application you're using (PPT, Prezi?) and what kind of handwriting hardware you're using to create your videos. Thanks in advance.

    Those elementary school teachers did a great job developing secondary next generation science standards…

  42. Gabriel Wilson

    January 15, 2018 at 11:53 pm

    These standards in the classroom are insulting to kids and the teachers who have to teach them. They create chaotic school environments that attempt to compete with the instant gratification of social media because kids intuitively know they are so dumb down. When instead we should be teaching our kids to work and focus deeply on content and how they can learn efficiently we are teaching them they should only try when they are so motivated that they will actually put down their cell phones. These standards are completely delusional and are created by people who are trying to make money or enrich their egos by reinventing the wheel. No wonder NSTA says NGSS is garbage.

    The reason this isn'tcalled common core is because it's been so poorly received with English and math. When you referenced society i got chills, this system is brainwashing kids with theory taught as fact. Specifically the plagerist Pasteur. Eventually every illness will be traced back to nutrition and lifestyle.

    this system of education is just arrival of of our advance in field of science and can be the trump card in field of outerspace research as it needed great vitualisation power and great curiosity to learn and explore that field and explore our extention living. if this sytem of eduacation given in all parts of world it could result in hyperjump in our research .

    Hello, where can I download the book of biology, chemistry and physics? I’m 10th Grade.
    Please tell me I need them very much.
