Our guiding beliefs and approach for CCR
Standards Implementation in WA
2-Prongs:
The What: Content Shifts (for students and educators)
1.

Belief that past standards implementation efforts have provided
a strong foundation on which to build; HOWEVER there are
shifts that need to be attended to in the content.
The How: System “Remodeling”
2.



7
Belief that successful implementation will not take place top
down or bottom up – it must be “both, and…”
Belief that districts across the state have the conditions and
commitment present to engage wholly in this work.
Professional learning systems are critical

Principles of
A Framework for K-12 Science Education
•Children are born investigators
•Understanding builds over time
•Science and Engineering require both
knowledge and practice
•Science connects to students’ interests and
experiences is essential
•Instruction focuses on core ideas and
practices
•Science learning standards promote equity

Overview: Standards Comparison
NGSS with WA 2009 Science Standards
Focus of Analysis:



Where overlaps and differences existed between the two
standard sets;
To identify new content or processes that existed; and
To form the basis for developing a transition plan should the
Superintendent adopt the NGSS.
Methodology:


Due to structural differences between the two sets of standards,
it was not possible to do a direct quantitative alignment.
A qualitative alignment was used.

NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Findings




The vast majority of Washington science standards are
fundamentally incorporated into the NGSS.
There is some movement of disciplinary core ideas between
grades at the elementary level, but this realignment goes hand in
hand with the goal of not getting ahead of the CCSS-M and
CCSS-ELA standards.
In particular, the Systems, Inquiry and Application standards from
Washington’s current standards are well-covered in the NGSS.
Modest differences exist between the Disciplinary Core Ideas in
the NGSS and the Domain standards in Washington’s EALR 4.

Most of the difference involves re-sequencing and an emphasis on
current scientific applications, but there is also a fundamental shift to a
deeper focus on fewer topics, much like the CCSS.
19
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Bias and Sensitivity Process

Last May, OSPI and Relevant Strategies LLC convened a
40 member committee to identify effective strategies for
implementing the Next Generation Science Standards
(NGSS) in a bias-free and culturally sensitive manner.
20
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Process Overview

The committee included science educators,
administrators, librarians, special education
experts, representatives from diverse communities
and higher education faculty

Reviewed current research on science education

Listened to and interacted with experts presenting
their ideas about teaching diverse learners, and

Collaborated in small groups to identify strategies
to effectively engage diverse students in science
education.
21
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Over-arching question
How can the NGSS be taught in a way that addresses
the needs of students from diverse backgrounds?
Teams selected a grade, disciplinary
core idea and topic from the NGSS to
ground their work.
Home and
Community
Classroom
The participants then identified and vetted effective
strategies to engage diverse learners in three domains:
classroom, home and community,
and school.
22
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
School
Effective
Strategies
The committee proposed researchbased classroom strategies such as…










connecting science education to students’ sense of place,
applying their funds of knowledge and cultural practices,
using project-based learning,
using culturally relevant pedagogy,
capitalizing on community involvement and social activism,
using role models,
providing accommodations and
modifications for students with
disabilities,
adopting language support strategies,
home language support,
and home culture connections.
23
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Suggestions made by presenters:













Create multiple pathways for learning
Provide all assignments and assessment
criteria up front.
Create reading guides and/or notes.
Discuss expectations explicitly and model
behavior.
Create time for debriefing and reflection.
Provide examples from past assignments.
Use multiple avenues for feedback.
Use teamwork
Value home and family connections
Build Career Interest
Motivate, Connect using partnerships,
Inspire, Mentor
Students want their teachers to know they
are not stupid. “So don’t limit students by
their linguistic factors.”
Make language changes in order to
empower students: e.g. Instead of “Do the
best you can” say: “How can I help you
show me what you know about this
content?”
24








Integrate intellectual, physical and emotional
factors to deepen students’ engagement in
their learning.
Identify cultural axioms that may initially be
thought of as barriers.
Develop student fluency in math and science
in order to be successful in post-secondary
education.
Think community economics: Grow STEM
skills internally and to avoid importing talent.
Help students access the best of the
American Dream.
Experience with perseverance - “Hard work
overcomes obstacles.”
Empower students to be leaders for
themselves and other students.
Recognize and celebrate
students’ successes.

25
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Why is this work important?

Reaching out to all students to engage their interest in learning
science is the right thing to do.

A few well-placed simple steps can make
all the difference in the world for
reducing the opportunity gap in science.

The NGSS represent a new opportunity to make science relevant,
interesting and meaningful for all students, their families and the
broader community, if implemented correctly.

Implementing the NGSS in a bias-free and culturally sensitive
manner will help reduce the opportunity gap and increase interest
in science, technology, engineering and math-related careers.

Sample Transition Plan: Grade 1
42
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
General Transition Advice
The committee provided transition planning input focused on a series of guiding
questions focused both on high-level and detailed policy and detailed
implementation issues.
Statewide Approach/Support
 HS Courses Pathways: Develop
explicit supports that make
connections with NGSS and
STEM courses and CTE
pathways. (NGSS, Appendix K)
 Develop a communications plan
with regard to the adoption of
and transition to the NGSS in
conjunction with CCSS.
 Work with other states on a
model process for vetting
instructional materials, with a
focus on pedagogical issues.
43




Implementation Considerations
Develop short (2-3 minute) video
vignettes on practices to create
professional development modules.
Support transition from WA’s
Application EALR to NGSS
Engineering Performance
Expectations.
Intentionally connect STEM and
CCSS practices to the NGSS.
Place initial emphasis on
pedagogical practices (shifts) not
immediately on instructional
materials, kits, labs, etc.
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Transitioning to the NGSS: Year 0
Do:
Study A Framework for K12 Science Education in
conjunction with the NGSS.
Work with colleagues to deeply understand the Science
and Engineering Practices, the Crosscutting Concepts
(CCCs) and the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs).
Identify the Practices, CCCs and DCIs that need deeper
study.
Consider how infusing the Practices into current classroom
changes pedagogical practice.
44
NGSS Webinar Part 1, 9-24-13
Transitioning to the NGSS: Year 0
Caution:
 Beware of activities that do not first begin with an
understanding of The Framework.
 Watch for activities that treat the NGSS as a swap out of
old standards
 Watch for activities that separate each Performance
Expectation into pieces (i.e. only the Practices, or the
CCCs, or the DCIs)
 Watch for one-shot implementation strategies – there is no
silver bullet
