How to Read the Next Generation Science Standards

This How to Read the Standards video explains how the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are structured and describes the different components of the organizational tables in which the standards are arranged. As states, districts, and educators implement the NGSS, this video can serve as an introduction to help understand how the standards are organized. 

As a supplement to the video, please see the annotated figure of the standards table arrangement that is featured as an example in the video.
