Improving K-12 Science Education In The US

A FRAMEWORK FOR K-12 SCIENCE EDUCATION, new from the National Research Council, identifies the key scientific concepts and practices that all students in these grades should learn. The framework offers a new vision for K-12 education in science and engineering and embodies a significant shift in how these subjects are viewed and taught.

It will serve as the basis for new science education standards, to replace those last issued over a decade ago, and will inform the work of curriculum and assessment developers, teacher educators, and researchers.
