Bringing authentic research and data into K-16 classrooms
Data Nuggets address science standards
The landscape of K-12 science education is shifting, moving away from rote memorization of science facts to an approach based on the process and practices of science where students are taught quantitative skills and how to construct arguments from evidence. Data Nuggets are a teaching resource that can help teachers integrate these curriculum changes into their classroom, while addressing The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and ACT College Readiness Standards. Data Nuggets reinforce these skills repeatedly throughout the school year and grade levels, and address all parts of the scientific process while covering core content.
Below are tables showing how Data Nuggets align with these science standards:
