Moving Next Generation Science Standards into Practice: A Middle School Ecology Unit and Teacher Professional Development Model

This full research and development project is focused on the DRK-12 program’s Learning strand with the goal to design, pilot, field-test, and study an eight-week middle school ecosystems unit and associated professional development that aligns with a bundle of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) performance expectations and Common Core State Standards. The project is implemented through a collaborative partnership between three institutions: the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley, the American Museum of Natural History, and the University of Connecticut.
