A Teacher's Guide to Using the Next Generation Science Standards With Gifted and Advanced Learners provides teachers and administrators with practical examples of ways to build comprehensive, coherent, and rigorous science learning experiences for gifted and advanced students from kindergarten to high school. It provides an array of examples across the four domains of science: physical sciences; Earth and space sciences; life sciences; and engineering, technology, and applications of science. Each learning experience indicates the performance expectation addressed and includes a sequence of activities, implementation examples, connections to the CCSS-Math and CCSS-ELA, and formative assessments. Chapters on specific instructional and management strategies, assessment, and professional development suggestions for implementing the standards within the classroom will be helpful for both teachers and administrators.

Review by: Jillian Gates, Education Review - November 16, 2016
Too often, books that discuss standards are academic and difficult to implement in the classroom, but this book moves seamlessly between theory and practice throughout . . . Overall, [this book] is an excellent document to have on an administrator or teacher desk for ready reference when planning science instruction.
Review by: Thomas Brown, National Science Teachers Association - January 5, 2015
A Teacher's Guide to Using the NGSS with Gifted Students is a terrific resource to help science teachers create vigorous and worthwhile learning experiences for their gifted and advanced students. This concise book will help teachers and administrators focus on the specific instructional strategies to insure that they are able to differentiate their curriculum in order to provide rigorous activities that excite their gifted students.
