The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are an explicit document that articulates our pedagogical practices in K-12 science instruction for the United States. The document is an excellent work that describes pedagogy and road maps for building coherence of science principles and student understanding of the Nature of Science. The prescient thing about the current NGSS is that physics teachers have practiced the ideas and tenets prescribed in the NGSS decades ago. Also, the ideas espoused in the NGSS Framework can easily be transferred to other disciplines, especially Math, through specific, articulated lesson building.
