The final public draft of what will be the Science Common Core State Standards is now available for public comment. The Next Generation Science Standards have been developed by the National Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the National Science Teachers Association, and writers from 26 states.

NAGC urges gifted education professionals who have science knowledge and experience to review and provide comments on the science standards so that the developers receive feedback on any concerns you have about using the standards with students who are gifted and talented in science. Your comments can be submitted via an online survey. Deadline for feedback is January 29; the final standards will be released in March.
