    NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS (NGSS)

     
    Three-Course Model
     
    The Division of Instruction has selected the 3-Course Model from the California Science Framework 2017 for High Science Instruction.  Use this link to access the Inter-Office Correspondence regarding the Implementation of High School Next Generation Science Standards Courses.
     
     The 3-Course Model as presented by the California Science Framework - Chapter Seven consists of:
     Biology of Living Earth AB 360737/38 Integrating Biology and Earth Science
    Chemistry in the Earth System AB 361413/14 Integrating Chemistry and Earth Science
    Physics Of The Universe AB 361531/32 Integrating Physics and Earth Science
     
    The rigor and expectations of the three dimensional learning of NGSS for each grade band endpoints are well defined. It is of great importance that teachers use the progression document as they are planning thier instruction.
     
    The order of the listed courses does not reflect an LAUSD recommendation for sequencing the three courses. It reflects the order the 3 courses are listed in chapter 7 in the CA Framework.
