Demonstrating EQuIP for Science

Four new videos highlighting the Educators Evaluating Quality in Instructional Products (EQuIP) for Science rubric are now available online.  Developed through a collaboration between Achieve and the Teaching Channel, the video series uses rich conversations emerging from a Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) EQuIP training session to illustrate some important features of NGSS-aligned instructional materials and classroom activities. 

Each of the stand-alone videos focuses on educators using different aspects of the EQuIP rubric and captures discussions of what to look for in NGSS instructional materials, as well as the evaluation and feedback process that the rubric is designed to support. Each video also highlights some of the common ideas and frequently asked questions that emerge during an EQuIP for Science training session.


For teachers, this series explores what the NGSS might look like in the classroom and how to think about shifts in the instructional materials that will support a transition to the standards. The videos are part of a growing suite of NGSS EQuIP resources, including the EQuIP Rubric for Lessons & Units: Science and the NGSS EQuIP Professional Learning Facilitator's Guide.
