The model curriculum provides a framework for the development of a more detailed local curriculum. The courses and units were developed through the work of consortia of practicing teachers, science supervisors, and higher education faculty. Each unit of instruction includes a guiding question, a unit overview, estimated number of instructional.   As it has in the past, EdReports relied on teachers to use an in-house framework to judge each curriculum. This time around, about 40 reviewers, mostly practicing teachers or science . The goal of the Massachusetts public K education system is to prepare all students for success after high school. Massachusetts public school students are leading the nation in reading and math and are at the top internationally in reading, science, and math according to the national NAEP and international PISA assessments.

The framework sets the vision for science education and identifies science and engineering practices, core disciplinary ideas, and cross-cutting concepts.

View the framework at the National Academies Press. Special Projects. The NGSS will be similar to the CCSS in math and language arts and are based on the Framework for K Science Education.

They will be rich in content and practice and arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.

The California Department of Education is committed to making its educational materials accessible to all. This Science Framework for California Public Schools has been designed to be accessible to assistive technologies that are often used by persons with disabilities. Most of the framework is compliant with federal Section of the Rehabilitation Act of (as amended).
