A different kind of program
Updated for the NGSS, EDC Earth Science incorporates the three dimensions of each NGSS Performance Expectation for high school earth science. This program:
- integrates 59 meaningful hands-on activities,
- includes embedded literacy strategies and comprehensive teacher support,
- and is packed with relevant Big Data to help students prepare for our data driven future.
EDC Earth Science is designed around the belief that students are capable of rigorous and in-depth explorations in science when given adequate support, structure, and motivation for learning.
Students perform over 59 data-intensive Earth Science investigations, all set in real-world contexts. They also engage in a variety of other activities, including topical fiction and non-fiction readings and research projects and presentations that build critical life and scientific literacy skills.
IT'S NOT A TEXTBOOK. IT'S NOT A KIT. IT'S A PROGRAM.
Each program component references the others to form a cohesive learning system for teachers and students.
We welcome the opportunity to address any questions, should they arise.
