Instructional Materials and Implementation of Next Generation Science Standards: Demand, Supply, and Strategic Opportunities

This report, produced by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, provides an overview of instructional materials available to support implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). For NGSS to be implemented in a sustainable manner, there need to be high-quality instructional materials made available to state and district leaders, as well as to teachers. This report discusses the development of NGSS-aligned instructional materials and how these materials related to teacher professional development. Included are suggestions for future actions related to the development of resources and supports for NGSS implementation.
