adaptation

1893 us high school curriculum
1893 US High School Curriculum
  • Physics requires quantitative skills—but--Chemistry requires Physics!
  • Physics preceded Chemistry in the Final Report
  • Biology was descriptive until the early 20th century
  • B-C-P sequence was set in 1920s
  • Geology wasn’t a formally-accepted science discipline
2013 science more than pcbs
2013 Science=More than PCBs
  • NRC Standards (1990s) included Earth Science in all grades, K-12
  • But. . . Nationally, only 20.7% of high school students take an E.S. course, down from 24.4% in 1996 (NCES)
  • Eighth grade, in New York
          • Sixth grade, in California
2013 science disciplines
2013 Science Disciplines

1893 Scope & Sequence:

  • Biology, Chemistry Physics

2013 Scope (Sequence, TBD)

  • Earth & Space Science, Life Science, Physical Science

Where is E.S. Taught in U.S?

  • In Middle Schools!

A “fourth-dimensional” intellectual capacity is a fairly sophisticated hallmark of a formal operational stage of cognitive development. This level of abstract thought may first evolve in adolescents, but some individuals never achieve this level, even well into adulthood.--Piaget and Inhelder, 1958

Secondary Science Credentials

  • Most Physics, Chemistry, Biology BS/BA programs require no Geology, (but do require the other disciplines).
  • Most Geology BA/BS degrees require Physics, Chemistry, and (in some cases) Biology

  • The NGSS are written as Performance Expectations
  • NGSS will require contextual application of the three dimensions by students.

Next Steps

Number of Years of High School Science Required:

1987 1996 2006 2008

Local Decision 6 7 6 6

1 – 2 Years 40 33 16 13

3 Years 3 8 27 27

4 Years 0 2 1 4

Local decision means that graduation requirements are set by local districts and may vary within a state. In 2008, all states with statewide requirements required ≥2 years of mathematics courses; only one state (Illinois) required 1 year of science.

NOTES: Data include Washington, DC. Column totals do not add to 51 because certain states did not participate in Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) survey that year or used a different credit reporting system. (1987 – leaves off Vermont and Arkansas, which both required 5 total math or science years; 1996 – still leaves off Vermont for the same reason; includes DC)

SOURCES: CCSSO, Key State Education Policies on PK-12 Education: 2008 (2009); Snyder TD, Digest of Education Statistics 1988, NCES 88-600 (1988); and Snyder TD, Digest of Education Statistics 1998, NCES 1999-036 (1999).

How would you construct a 6-12 curriculum around the NGSS, given the amount and complexity of the Earth and Space Science?

Course Map #1: Conceptual Understanding Model

slide35
How would you construct a 6-12 curriculum around the NGSS, given the amount and complexity of the Earth and Space Science?

Course Map #1: Conceptual Understanding Model:

Courses constructed based on the most efficient and logical progression of concepts

slide36
How would you construct a 6-12 curriculum around the NGSS, given the amount and complexity of the Earth and Space Science?

Course Map #2: Science Domains Model:

The 3 courses are Physical Science, Life Science, and Earth and Space Science

(for both middle and high school)

slide37
How would you construct a 6-12 curriculum around the NGSS, given the amount and complexity of the Earth and Space Science?

Course Map #3: Modified Science Domains Model (for high school):

Incorporate the Earth and Space Science into existing biology, chemistry, and physics courses.

 Least efficient in terms of instruction time; concepts taught out of order (without adequate prerequisites)
