Steinhardt Researcher, Lee, Says "Do" Language With Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

Is there a separate standard for students with disabilities, English language learners (ELLs), gifted and talented students, and other diverse student groups? The short answer: no, according to the last question on the teaching standards guidelines Q&A on the official Engage NY website for Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts and Mathematics.

“The consensus among educators at all levels is that ELLs and other diverse student groups need some sort of dedicated effort in order to keep up with their peers as the CCSS are implemented,” said Okhee Lee, professor of teaching and learning at NYU Steinhardt and a member of the leadership team for the Next Generation 500
