Abstract 

This report describes findings from a study of middle school science curriculum materials. In the study, middle school science teachers who used curriculum materials that presented opportunities for students to engage in science practices improved their students’ performance on next generation science assessments. The study took place in a large urban district and was conducted by researchers at SRI international, University of Colorado Boulder, and Michigan State University with support from a grant by the National Science Foundation.
