Standards

Standards ensure that students in different schools and classrooms across the country are taught the same basic information on a particular subject.  Some states have created customized standards that are used exclusively within their state. PBS LearningMedia labels all national standards Common Core State Standards (English and Math) and National Standards (all other areas of study). Custom state standards are labeled State Standards.

Science Resources

PBS LearningMedia science resources have been aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, a multi-state effort to create new educational standards that are "rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.” NGSS standards are backed by the National Science Teachers Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the National Research Council, and Achieve. Specifically, we have aligned our resources to address two dimensions of the NGSS standards, the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) and the Scientific and Engineering Practices.
