Communication Tools

In collaboration with the California Alliance for Next Generation Science Standards (CA4NGSS), CSTA has developed a series of tools designed to help teachers communicate with parents about the California Next Generation Science Standards (CA NGSS).

Priority Features of NGSS Instructional Materials

CSTA and the science teachers associations of three other Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) west-coast states, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, have co-authored a white paper on priority features of NGSS instructional materials. As your school or district begins to review materials, use this resource along with other available tools to evalute materials.
