We are pleased to share the Lisle Junior High School Science Teacher Natalie Keigher has been is one of 11 new professionals to sit on the Achieve Science Peer Review Panel (PRP) from over 200 applicants in 39 states, DC and international locations. This prestigious panel evaluates lesson sequences and units designed for the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and sharing high-quality examples online.
Mrs. Keigher was selected because she demonstrated extensive knowledge of the NGSS and a critical eye for high-quality materials designed for the NGSS. According to Achieve, "Peer reviewers play a major role in advancing science education across the country. One of the biggest challenges in NGSS implementation around the country is a lack of high-quality instructional materials designed for the NGSS. The Science PRP addresses this problem by evaluating free and publicly-available materials with the nationally-respected EQuIP Rubric for Science, identifying high-quality examples, and posting them publicly for the education community - both teachers and publishers - to see what materials faithfully designed for the NGSS actually look like."
Congratulations to Mrs. Keigher on this honor!
