Educating the next generation of scientists
With an ever-changing world and competitive 21st century workforce, today’s students need a solid K–12 education to be fully prepared for their futures.
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were drafted to provide a strong science education that improves student achievement through critical thinking, personalized learning, and practice. By learning to think like scientists and engage in scientific practices, students will develop and apply the 21st century skills they’ll need for success in college and careers.
The National Research Council’s Next Generation Science Standards will define key science concepts that every American student should learn, beginning in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Comprised of three Dimensions—Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas—the NGSS promote a view of science as both a body of knowledge and an evidence-based, model- and theory-building initiative that continually extends, refines, and revises knowledge.
To successfully implement the NGSS in your school, you’ll need trusted instructional materials fully correlated to the NGSS, as well as best-in-class professional development to help teachers adapt to this major shift in science education.

Pearson’s goal is to help you understand the NGSS and ease your transition with a reliable, phased approach. our NGSS-correlated science programs and professional development will ensure thorough coverage of the new standards and empower you to deliver the NGSS vision of personalized learning to every student in your classroom. We’re prepared to help you understand what the new science standards mean, diagnose where you are, and help you get to where you need to be.
Transition support— today and tomorrow
“There’s going to be a big shift toward
more big-picture thinking, more systems
thinking, observing, being analytical—in
short, thinking instead of memorizing.”

Assessment Throughout the year, personalized benchmark, diagnostic, and summative assessments result in data that is converted into an actionable plan to identify, implement, and improve interventions and curriculum.
InstructIon using assessment data, educators plan and execute an instructional strategy targeted where the student needs it most. Along the way, supplemental tools allow teachers to collaborate and enhance the student experience.
servIces Consultative and professional development assistance provides feedback and support, and then offers instructional improvement strategies to increase both educator accountability and academic standards.
PlAtforms A platform of personalized, interoperable technology solutions lies beneath it all, providing the basis for a highly functioning system that delivers assessment, instruction, data, professional development, and simplified classroom management.
