NVACSS Guide for Teachers


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.
