It’s challenging to teach science well to all students while connecting your lessons to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This unique book portrays real teaching scenarios written by the teachers on the NGSS Diversity and Equity Team. The seven authentic case studies vividly illustrate research- and standards-based classroom strategies you can use to engage seven diverse demographic groups:
• Economically disadvantaged students
• Students from major racial and ethnic groups
• Students with disabilities
• English language learners
• Students in alternative education
• Gifted and talented students
Supplementing the case studies are additional chapters to deepen your understanding of the strategies and make what you learn more usable. These chapters address how to design units with the NGSS and diversity in mind, apply a rubric to improve your teaching using the NGSS with diverse student groups, and use the case studies in teacher study groups. Furthermore, leaders of the NGSS— including Helen Quinn, Stephen Pruitt, Andrés Henríquez, and Joe Krajcik—offer their insights and commitments to diversity and equity.
NGSS for All Students will help you make the instructional shifts necessary to prepare all your students for college and careers.
