These are Nevada Academic Content
Standards for Science Guides for Teachers. These resources
are designed to facilitate the classroom implementation of the
Nevada Academic Content Standards (NVACSS) revised based on
the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in 2014.
The purpose of these guides is to
help teachers access the science standards in order to integrate the
three dimensions of science education [scientific and
engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas (DCIs), and crosscutting concepts
(CCCs) into the curriculum. Each guide identifies science
performance expectations by topic, presents the storyline to
demonstrate horizontal and vertical alignment, focuses on the big questions and
outlines the appropriate science framework dimensions that facilitate
the teaching and learning of science in the classroom. The video
(coming soon) gives an overview regarding use of the guides.
