NGSS – Next Generation Science Standards
TPS and partners are currently building their NGSS program TK-G12 and is happy to announce that Grades K-8 content is now available. You can view the content by requesting a digital link. Email, NGSS@tpspublishing.com
TPS are creating the program using project based learning; cross curricula materials with inclusive lesson plans.
The whole program is underpinned with a strategy of cross curricula learning; literacy and core subject language being key.
We will use STEM projects, Science is A Verb, Traditional lesson plans, Arts projects, Activity reader books, interactive home learning and practice, and by grade, by skill level assessments to ensure we cover all requirements.
Materials for EL and Special Education students, and for at and advanced learners will be included.
For all parents we will continue to sell individual books, and run workshops to enable you to help your children at home. We will create home test preparation packs by domain, by grade.
Professional development courses are available for all schools together with a 24 hour helpline for support.
As school districts will have the choice of integrated or topical middle school delivery, TPS offer both options.
Schools are now using our materials in pilot phase and we continue to update the content to keep pace with NGSS requirements.
More information will be posted as we have full grade content ready for sale.
Our program has by grade kits available in class sets of x 30. However, we also provide kits for up to x 5 students to ensure varying class sizes can be catered for and homeschool families can use the program.
Kits are provided by McAlister Kits.Their website is mcalisterkits.com
Until then, if you wish to see our current build and become a pilot site please contact us for further information by emailing Maz Wright.
