Powerful Instructional Practices Science



Teachers who adopt SREB’s Powerful Science Instructional Practices encourage students to develop a love of science and a desire to explore natural or human-designed phenomena in or out of the classroom. We encourage teachers to use these instructional practices with any curriculum and in tandem with our Powerful Instructional Practices for Literacy and Mathematics.

As lead developers of the Next Generation Science Standards, Pruitt partnered with Brett Moulding, a member of the National Academy of Sciences Board on Science Education, to write and refine the practices. The practices are based on NGSS’ model of three-dimensional learning: science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas.
