In this session, Tom Keller from the National Research Council will update participants on the process and progress of the science conceptual framework and the plan for development of next-generation science education standards. How this effort is similar to and different from the Common Core State Standards initiative in Mathematics and English Language Arts will be made clear. Timelines for each phase of this undertaking will be described, and there will be opportunity for questions and answers. In addition, Keller will talk about the Academy’s publication Preparing Teachers: Building Evidence for Sound Policy.
