• National Research Council Framework

    The National Research Council (NRC) developed A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Cross-Cutting Concepts, and Core Ideas in July 2011.  The framework identifies the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the end of high school. This framework is guiding the work on the development of the Next Generation Science Standards.
