Carolina Biological Supply Company Announces California Close to Adopting New School Science Teaching Materials

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 19 luglio 2018

California science classes are about to get a surge of new resources to support an energetic, student-driven, hands-on, and phenomena-based vision of the California Next Generation Science Standards (CA NGSS). The state is reviewing new science instructional materials for the first time in 12 years to help science teachers succeed in teaching students the latest standards. The Calif. Department of Education (CDE) accepted submissions for science material adoption for grades K-8 this spring and will make recommendations for materials adoptions this month for formal adoption in the fall. Teachers have been working hard to adapt to positive, but major changes in science education as the state took a leadership role two years ago when it created its own new “Science Framework.” Many teachers have older books that were not written to the standards and therefore don’t cover the new content. Schools need new high-quality materials to address new forward-thinking standards, requiring phenomena-driven three-dimensional learning, instruction across the curriculum, and learning that is relevant to students’ lives.
Almost 20 expert science publishers, including leading school science supplier Carolina Biological Supply Company working together with expert curriculum developers from the Smithsonian Science Education Center, welcomed the challenge. They submitted new print and digital science materials written specifically to align with the state’s new standards. Both Carolina’s and Smithsonian’s three-dimensional science investigation-based programs turn students into scientists during short 30-minute (grades K-5) or 45-minute (grades 6-8) investigations that fit into the school day. Phenomena-rich investigations and meaningful engineering design challenges put the experience in students’ hands. Carolina’s Building Blocks of Science™ |3D (K-5) and Smithsonian Science and Technology Concepts Middle School™ (STCMS™) make science engaging as students work in groups to drive their own investigations of science phenomena and learn through hands-on physical experiments and digital simulations.
