A framework for K-12 science education: Practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas

A Framework for K-12 Science Education represents the first step in a process to create new standards in K-12 science education. This project capitalizes on a major opportunity that exists at this moment—a large number of states are adopting common standards in mathematics and English/ language arts and thus are poised to consider adoption of common standards in K-12 science education.
