High School Course Decision-Making

My long-time colleague, friend, and previous student over 34 years ago , Eric Brundin is the Science Curriculum Leader for Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD).  As with many high schools in California, LBUSD is still grappling with their transition from the 1998 CA Science Standards to Next Generation Science Standards.

To help Long Beach high school science teachers make informed decisions regarding the selection of NGSS-aligned pathways and course development, Eric prepared a short 14-minute video that presents the various options, along with the pros and cons, that are outlined in our newly approved Science Framework.

If your science department and district are in the midst of making this decision, I highly recommend you watch this short video.  You will find this resource extremely helpful as you move forward with this high-stakes decision.
