Teaching K–12 Science and Engineering During a CrisisDownload
This guide describes what high quality science and engineering education can look like during a time of great uncertainty. It includes guidance — with an emphasis on the needs of district science supervisors, curriculum leads, and instructional coaches — about how K–12 science and engineering learning experiences can function during disruptions to education systems, adapt as needed to support students and their families dealing with ongoing changes to instructional and home environments, and remain at high quality (or increase in quality), even if time for instruction is reduced this year. The guide is based on reports from the Board on Science Education at the National Academies that focus on teaching science and engineering in grades K–12. It also incorporates input and examples from educators across the country.
