Meet Jeanane Charara, a Science Resource teacher, a Science Peer Review Panelist, and has earned a Level 1 EQuIP Leader Credential. The Science PRP is an elite cohort of educators from across the country with expertise in the NGSS and the EQuIP Rubric for Science that reviews lessons and units to determine if these materials are NGSS aligned. Jeanane walks us through each of the EQuIP rubric categories and explains how teachers can use it to evaluate their NGSS curriculum and/or use as a guide in designing their own NGSS instructional material. Lots to learn here!

"The EQuIP is broken into three categories. The first category is all about the NGSS alignment. The second category is all about instructional supports. And then the third category is all about evaluating an assessment, so monitoring student progress." [05:05-05:20] Jeanane Charara
"The rubric can look a little daunting. I remember when I first started looking at the rubric, I thought that 'Wow, I don't think I've ever seen anything of this caliber. I don't know if I can find materials that can match this.' It almost seems impossible, but we've got some badge materials out there and being part of the panel has allowed me to see that there are some great things and our feedback does help people come back with really great lessons." [16:30 - 16:55] Jeanane Charara
