Description

By Invitation ONLY. In order to accomplish the important tasks needed, as well as share it as an Open Education Resource (OER) so all of our districts can benefit, a selected group of teachers will work on one unit between September 2018 and July 2019 and present that unit in August 2019.

With the adoption of the Washington State Science Learning Standards (Next Generation Science Standards) in 2013, Washington began a four-year transition to implement these standards and develop a statewide assessment. The Next Generation Science ASsessment (NGSA) became operation in the Spring of 2018, districts are in need of new course maps for high school.

Achieve, an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit education reform organization that helped develop the standards, continues to provide guidance for implementation. One of the key resources are the Course Bundles that identify which performance expectation could be grouped together to form units of instruction. The Course Bundle for year one of high school is comprised of 27-performance expectations divided among 6, four-week long units.

At this time there have been few, if any,publishers that have created curriculum to align to the new standards. Knowing that the class of 2021 will be assessed on the new standards, there has been a request from many of our districts to assist in the development of units around the Achieve Course Bundles.
