The amount that teachers have to deal with on a daily basis is vast! Shana and I talked about strategies to manage it and minimize it all.

Working with my colleagues we took our District's linear sequence for Physics and found the Performance Expectations that fit with each of our units. From there we added our own objectives for some, more for others; Waves & Sound for example have many more of our own objectives because there are not many in NGSS that are about sound and mechanical waves. We also found some Science & Engineering Practices that were included in these units. There are many more practices we could have kept, but we were trying to keep it to a page. :) These are a work in process and are our own curricular guides; please take them lightly as we along with the rest of the country align to NGSS.
NGSS Aligned Unit Outlines:
|Circular Motion,Torque||Thermodynamics||Momentum||Waves & Sound|
