National Academies Guide on Teaching K-12 Science and Engineering During a Crisis

Carnegie Corporation grantee offers solutions for disruptions in learning amid the ongoing pandemic

One of the biggest challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has presented is how to continue providing consistent and quality education amid disruptions to learning environments. The Board on Science Education at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, a longtime Carnegie Corporation grantee, has published a guide, Teaching K-12 Science and Engineering During a Crisis, offering solutions for disruptions around science learning in particular.

The free, downloadable guide is aimed at district science supervisors, curriculum leads, and instructional coaches, and provides instruction for 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 even increase in quality, even if time for instruction is reduced this year.

Based on previous reports from the Board on Science Education, the guide also incorporates input and examples from educators across the country.
