NGSS! LiteracyTA to the Rescue!

By on March 21, 2018

The new science standards bring together skills, knowledge, and habits of mind that target ways of learning in science. The goal of these standards is to improve student achievement in science and deepen students’ knowledge of how science and engineering works in the world. LiteracyTA has produced valuable online tools, professional development, and teacher materials to help science teachers deliver Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). 

Specifically, we have developed an NGSS alignment document that brings together state literacy standards, NGSS Science and Engineering Practices, and LiteracyTA's reading, speaking, and writing skills.

Although LiteracyTA offers many tools and resources to help science teachers plan and implement NGSS lessons, LiteracyTA best supports the Science and Engineering Practices (SEP). With our skills for reading, speaking, and writing about scientific and technical texts, LiteracyTA is uniquely qualified to support literacy practices in the science classroom.

Click on the document above and you will be taken to our Standards section. On the right of the page, you will find our NGSS alignment document.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
