Curriculum Development

Sample Projects

Crafting a High-School chemistry curriculum.  

Using research-backed units as the starting point for the work, our team has worked with teachers to create a full year coherent sequence of units that are aligned with the NGSS performance expectations, promote student engagement, and support meaningful learning.  The curriculum implementation is accompanied by classroom observation, instructional coaching and professional learning sessions.

Incorporating Computer Science Standards (CSS) into 3-5 science curriculum.

To address the call to incorporate CSS standards into k-5 curriculum, our team has incorporated those standards into an existing science curriculum through the introduction of a computer-based modeling tool. Through use of that tool, students are engaging in scientific modeling(one of the core practices of the NGSS) as well as various computational and system thinking skills.  The modified curriculum is accompanied by an interactive video guide that guides the teacher through the creation of both teacher and student models as well as a virtual workshop.

Creating Earth and Space Science curriculum.

Working alongside teachers, our team is leading an effort to create a full year NGSS-aligned curriculum.  This curriculum will address all the earth and space science performance expectations as outlined by the NGSS with an emphasis on three-dimension all earning, students’ engagement and meaningful learning.
