For nearly a year, science teachers at Roosevelt Middle School have been reviewing and evaluating various curriculum resources that support the shifts in content and instruction found in the Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS). Consequently, Roosevelt science teachers and the administration are recommending the adoption of the IQWST science curriculum for the 2016-2017 school year and beyond. IQWST is a research-based, NGSS-aligned resource that provides three-dimensional and project-based learning along with multifaceted and focused professional development. Teachers will have the tools to encourage deeper scientific thinking and the “doing” of science. You can learn more about the resources by clicking here to review the Board of Education's COW presentation on the IQWST materials.
We invite parents to review samples of the IQWST materials at Roosevelt Middle School The curriculum items will be displayed near the Roosevelt Multi-Purpose Room for parent review and comment from Tuesday, May 3 - Tuesday, May 10. Parents interested in additional information may also want to access the COW packet for May 3.
