The National Academy of Science defines science as the “use of evidence to construct testable explanations and predictions of natural phenomena, as well as the knowledge generated through this process.”
Our world is shaped, largely, by discoveries in science, and so it is important that our students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to fully understand and form opinions about these discoveries.
Curriculum writers play a vital role in the instruction of our students. Our curriculum writers are responsible for working with their grade level colleagues to develop, implement, and evaluate the subject area scope and sequence. Additionally, curriculum writers periodically attend meetings at the end of the school day where they receive information and share ideas with other curriculum writers. They, in turn, then disseminate information from these meetings to their grade level colleagues. Curriculum writers also provide training for their campuses when needed.
