by: Harold Pratt

The handy Reader's Guide unpacks the three key dimensions of the Framework—scientific and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas in each specific discipline—allowing teachers, administrators, curriculum developers, university professors, and others to more easily grasp how the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) differ from previous standards.

This second edition includes 10 essays by key leaders in science education, each further explaining the Framework.
