FOSS California

San Diego Unified School District

Curriculum Orientation Session


Science vision for sdusd l.jpg
Science Vision for SDUSD

Science is an integral part of the intellectual development of a child. Interest in science begins with attitudes and values established in the earliest years through daily experiences. Students graduating from high school must have a foundation in scientific knowledge and evidence based reasoning.


Science vision for sdusd3 l.jpg
Science Vision for SDUSD

What kinds of Science opportunities do we need to provide for our students to be successful in accomplishing this vision?



Slide5 l.jpg

CA Science

Standards

FOSS meets 100% of the CA Science Standards through active investigation, reading and assessment


Slide6 l.jpg

> 25%

hands-on

FOSS far exceeds 25% hands-on experiences with relevant materials and live organisms


Slide7 l.jpg

FOSS reflects current learning research; rooted in a 30-year tradition of multi-sensory science education

Access for ALL

students

Materials Management to read and communicate their learning

  • All kits will continue to be refurbished at the IMC Science Materials Center

  • FOSS Student textbooks will remain in the classroom for the duration of the adoption

  • “Trees” kit will be left in the Kinder classroom at school site

  • Principals will be responsible for ordering kits and live materials

  • Live materials’ cost district-paid, year 1


Science benchmark assessments grades 3 5 l.jpg
Science Benchmark Assessments Grades 3-5 to read and communicate their learning

  • Will be given to all students in grades 3-5 every 12 weeks

  • 30 item assessment to be administered following completion of the unit

  • Multiple choice questions that will be answered using scantron forms

  • Will provide immediate feedback to teachers about student understanding of the content


Professional development l.jpg
Professional Development to read and communicate their learning

  • One hour orientation meetings in May and June

  • Two hours in June and July “Curriculum Implementation Training: Earth Science”

  • All teachers should attend

  • Focus on: the standards, content, materials, planning for implementation using the units of study

  • Physical and Life Science Implementation Training will be scheduled for Winter and Spring (prior to kit delivery)
