Evidence of Alignment
IT'S NOT A TEXTBOOK. IT'S NOT A KIT. IT'S A PROGRAM.
Each learning journey should have a clear path
These Learning Pathways are used in unit development by SEPUP, at the Lawrence Hall of Science, in the same way schools are using multi-colored stickies to ensure the three dimensions are authentically intertwined in the activity and unit design.
An intentionally flexible approach to all program activity types help accomplish our goal that all students achieve scientific literacy.
Integrated into the programs the SEPUP assessment system sets up ways to collect evidence on student learning and improve performance.
Embedded strategies help teachers explore students' thinking and give students multiple opportunities to confront their preconceptions.
LAB-AIDS materials and kits are relevant to the students and take difficult concepts and really break it down in ways that I think our students would have a better chance at understanding. We really liked the Labsent ability to help students who are absent or even just to use as a teaching aid to demonstrate visually ways to set-up the lab for different types of learners. We also feel that the materials really speak to all students across our diverse student population so that everyone can benefit from it.
