HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Accelerate Learning announced today that STEMscopes™ NGSS 3D has received the highest rating for alignment to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) from Learning List, an instructional materials review service for schools and districts. The Alignment Report is an independent review of the material’s alignment to each NGSS standard in grades K-8.
STEMscopes NGSS 3D is a phenomena-based STEM curriculum that provides teachers with everything they need to address the Disciplinary Core Ideas, Crosscutting Concepts, and Science and Engineering Practices that form each standard of the NGSS. It includes customizable, coherent, storyline-driven bundles that immerse students in overarching STEM phenomena while linking three dimensions across lesson modules.
“Learning List considers a product aligned to a standard only if it addresses the content, context, and rigor of the standard. STEMscopes NGSS 3D was built from the ground up to the NGSS, and we are pleased to see that Learning List has given the curriculum its highest rating for alignment,” said Vernon Johnson, president and CEO of Accelerate Learning. “With this objective, independent review, educators can choose instructional materials more effectively and efficiently, and have greater confidence that they will address the knowledge and skills students need.”
“Since so many of our subscribing districts are looking for high quality NGSS materials, we were delighted to review STEMscopes NGSS 3D,” said Jackie Lain, president of Learning List. “Our detailed alignment reports reveal where the material is aligned not only to the Performance Expectations (PE), but also to the DCIs, CCCs and SEPs that comprise each PE.
