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.
