Several groups, including the National Research Council and the National Science Teachers Association, are currently collaborating to revise the national K-12 science standards. In 2011, the National Research Council released a conceptual “Framework for Science Education” which identifies several cross-cutting skills and concepts that should be emphasized in science classrooms. Explore the framework by downloading the 6-page report brief at http://www7.nationalacademies.org/bose/Standards_Framework_Homepage.html. Pay particular attention to the first section, “Science and Engineering Practices,” which describes common processes in scientific research. In your opinion, how well does K-12 science instruction currently teach these practices? Create a visual way to represent the relationship between the work of an individual scientist, like Rachel Pike, and a report like theIPCC’s Climate Change 2007.
