   K-12 Science Program


The science program reflects the changing emphasis of science education.

  • There is more emphasis on activities that analyze and investigate science questions, and less emphasis on activities that demonstrate and verify science content
  • There is more emphasis on investigations over extended periods of time and less emphasis on investigations confined to one class period
  • There is more emphasis on groups of students analyzing and synthesizing data after defending conclusions and less emphasis on individuals and groups of students analyzing and synthesizing data without defending a conclusion
  • There is more emphasis on collegial and collaborative learning and less emphasis on individuals learning in isolation
