Equitable from the Start: Strategies for Making Science Relevant, Engaging, and Accessible

Science and Children—January/February 2024

By ,

Equalizing opportunities for students to learn science and engineering in the ways described in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) requires intentional planning. In this paper, we describe a framework for designing equitable and inclusive science lessons. We then share an example of how this framework was applied to the launch of a fifth grade science unit, specifying the instructional strategies used to provide students with a meaningful, relevant, and engaging learning experience.
