Today’s science standards have initiated a significant shift in all parts of the science education system. As a result, science instructional materials are also changing. Educators, school and district administrators, and developers of instructional materials need to be able to develop a common vision of high-quality curricula that will prepare students for success in school and beyond.
A key shift in learning designed for today’s science standards is supporting students to explain phenomena and to design solutions to problems. To accompany the existing guidance in the field on driving instruction with phenomena, this resource provides examples and guidance on what it can look like to drive instruction with engineering design problems.
The EQuIP Rubric for Science Detailed Guidance provides details on each of the 19 EQuIP Rubric criteria, including what they look like in materials, connections between the criteria, and some common pitfalls.
This professional learning resource provides a series of 10 modules designed to guide and support leaders to provide professional learning that builds the capacity of educators and education leaders to use the EQuIP Rubric for Science, Version 3.0.
"Bundles" are groups of standards arranged together to create the endpoints for units of instruction. Bundling is just one step in a curriculum development process; many other steps are required to create instructional materials designed for the NGSS.
