Two new EDC high school science curricula are now available as ebooks from Carolina. Developed by a team led by Jackie Miller (at left), Biology: Concepts & Practices and Chemistry: Concepts & Practices foster Grade 9-12 students' scientific and data literacy, build their reading, writing, and oral communication skills, and challenge them to practice 21st-century problem-solving skills.
Both curricula use real-life case studies to spark students' interest in science and deepen their understanding of major scientific concepts. Listen to a podcast in which Miller and Roy Gould of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics discuss "The Power of Story in STEM Education."
The curricula were originally developed with support from the National Science Foundation, as part of EDC's Foundation Science series. All student learning experiences are accompanied by Teacher's Guides that offer instructional strategies to support students' successful learning, meet performance expectations of the Next Generation Science Standards, and advance the goals of the Common Core Standards for English Language to ensure students are ready for success in college, career, and life by the time they graduate from high school.
