"The Sierra Institute project is probably the single most impactful thing that I’ve had the opportunity to do that has helped me to truly understand the goals of NGSS and what is really involved in making the instructional practice shifts. My ability to see the integration of the DCI’s, CCC’s and the SEP’s in a real and useful way has increased exponentially. To be honest, this project took those acronyms from being just acronyms to actually meaning something for me and my students."
