NGSS Pathways

general issues


Each Performance Expectation comes at the end of a Learning Pathway, a sequence of activities that includes appropriate disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts. The pathway also integrates Common Core State Standards in ELA and Math. Each instructional unit bundles numerous Performance Expectations therefore an activity may be part of several intertwined Learning Pathways. By the time that the student reaches the activity that incorporates the assessment related to the Performance Expectation, he or she will have interacted with the content, practices, and crosscutting concepts numerous times in their learning journey.
