Using the Next Generation Science Standards With Gifted and Advanced Learners provides teachers and administrators examples and strategies to implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with gifted and advanced learners at all stages of development in K–12 schools.
The book describes—and demonstrates with specific examples from the NGSS—what effective differentiated activities in science look like for high-ability learners. It shares how educators can provide rigor within the new standards to allow students to demonstrate higher level thinking, reasoning, problem solving, passion, and inventiveness in science. By doing so, students will develop the skills, habits of mind, and attitudes toward learning needed to reach high levels of competency and creative production in science fields.
