I have been extremely satisfied with Issues and Science and supporting materials. As a science teacher with over 20 years of experience, the SEPUP modules have been the most comprehensive units. The units we have used in Kyrene are experimental and inquiry based with quality hands-on experiences for students. The program has actually saved me money in the longterm because all the supplies and materials are INCLUDED! The updated website with LABsent videos, presentations, and access to the student sheets has been a big help especially when training new teachers on a resource. The addition of online Spanish versions is also a big plus for our dual-language schools.
I have a student teacher at the moment and using Issues and Science is SO MUCH BETTER FOR A BRAND NEW TEACHER! Seriously. That is such a big deal as we are hiring more and more alternatively certified teachers and/or new teachers.
