EDC Earth Science takes students on an exploration of these questions and others, seeking answers grounded in authentic data and the growing body of knowledge about Earth’s systems. A full-year high school earth science course developed with support from the National Science Foundation and fully aligned to A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts and Core Ideas (NRC, 2012), 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 data-intensive investigations set in real-world contexts and engage in a variety of activities that build critical data-using skills.
EDC Earth Science is now available at LAB-AIDS
