In today’s rapidly evolving educational landscape, selecting the right digital curriculum is crucial for administrators tasked with ensuring student success. OpenSciEd’s digital science curriculum, combined with the powerful features of the Kiddom platform, by exposing and equipping students to be college and career ready.
OpenSciEd’s curriculum is made even better on the Kiddom platform as it empowers administrators and teachers to create engaging and effective learning experiences.
OpenSciEd’s Digital Science Curriculum
OpenSciEd’s curriculum has earned a stellar reputation for its commitment to research-based practices and alignment with state standards. By leveraging this comprehensive and dynamic curriculum, educators can foster a deeper understanding of scientific concepts among their students. With a focus on inquiry-based learning and hands-on investigations, OpenSciEd’s curriculum equips students with the skills necessary to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
It does this through its storyline approach. A logical sequence of lessons that are motivated by students’ questions that arise from students’ interactions with scientific phenomena.
To help teachers and students advance through a unit storyline, the instructional model takes advantage of five routines—activities that play specific roles in advancing the storyline with structures to help students achieve the objectives of those activities. The routines typically follow a pattern as students kick off a unit of study, investigate different questions they have, put the pieces together from those investigations, and then problematize the next set of questions to investigate.
