It has been nearly twenty years since the last national science standards, the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Benchmarks for Science Literacy (Benchmarks) (AAAS, 1993) and the National Resource Council’s National Science Education Standards (NSES) (NRC, 1996) were published. In 2013, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), developed using the latest research in science and science teaching, were released. Unlike previous standards, the NGSS are divided into three dimensions, (a) disciplinary core ideas (DCIs), which is the content, (b) crosscutting concepts (CCCs), which are the connections between science subjects, and (c) scientific and engineering practices ...
