The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are K–12 science content standards that help set  the expectations for what students should know and be able to do at different grade levels. The NGSS are designed to improve science education for all students.

To that end, we have developed correlations between the NGSS (high school level) and Fascinating Education core Courses.  In the first set of documents below, you will find each of the standards listed with both the Disciplinary Core ideas (what students should know) and Performance Expectations (what students should be able to do).  In the documents that follow – Dr. Margulies has taken each Disciplinary Core Idea and each Performance Expectation and detailed where in his lessons they are addressed

If you are interested in learning more about Next Generation Science Standards, there are literally hundreds of documents available online.  A good place to start would be http://www.nextgenscience.org/
