Science Teachers - call for tagging of XCC and S&EP

In a recent conversation, @mszczepanik posed the idea of having the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices and the Crosscutting Concepts as taggable standards.

I agree that this would be very useful since I can see them as a great way to promote DOK across the DCI’s (sorry for all the acronyms). For me, knowing that a student is able to use models and or identify patterns regardless of the content is more useful than tagging by DCI’s.

I am wondering if this is something that would be useful to you, too. If you agree, perhaps you can simply add an agree to this topic so we can “make the case”

I agree. This is would help students see it’s about skills.


#3

I like this idea. Students need to see that different content tie together.

This would be amazing! It would make it a lot easier to compare student data and drive instruction.
