Need to Know

The Next Generation Standards are good for teachers because:

  1. They allow for more focused professional development and promote collaboration.
  2. They can inform the development of a curriculum that promotes deep understanding for all children.
  3. They can give educators more time to focus on depth of understanding and richer units of study rather than focusing on "fitting everything in".

These videos provide examples documenting the history of the rollout of the Next Generation Standards in West Virginia.
