The Next Generation Science Standards* majorly shifts science education by integrating life, physical, and earth sciences with engineering and technology. The new science standards emphasize scientific practices including asking questions, constructing models, planning investigations, analyzing data, using math, forming explanations, evidence based argument, and communication. All the new science standards also incorporate crosscutting concepts like patterns, cause & effect, scale & proportion, systems & system models, energy & matter, structure & function, and stability & change.

The new common core ELA standards are mainly English standards, but they incorporate a lot of non-fiction reading and writing in science and technology. The new standards are broken down by grade level, 6-8, 9-10, and 11-12 and are broken down into several sections. Students will be assessed using the Depth of Knowledge (DOK).
