Curriculum Development and Dissemination Partners
Translating current science into user-friendly, standards-based curriculum modules for public middle and high schools requires thoughtful collaboration. We are very appreciative of our partners and for the broad base of educational research that our curriculum development and teacher training processes build on. Our partnerships have enabled success and always include students, teachers and scientists. Collaborations also include other stakeholders depending on the module being developed. Often we include artists, farmers, physicians and external organizations. For instance, by working with NOAA, NASA, school districts, and statewide educational organizations our Ocean Acidification module was written into California State's 3-Course Science Framework by the CA Board of Education in 2016 (see Chapter 7.2).
We are working with educators from schools and districts within all 50 states and multiple countries. Curriculum development and broad dissemination have been possible only through all of the partners listed above plus many others over the years. Please see the SEE About pages - Overview, Curriculum Development, History, SEE Timeline, Impact - and our Modules pages for more information on our partners and processes.
Our close work with the Logan Center for Education, also housed at ISB, to offer systemic-wide school training also further enhances our modules and enables their broad dissemination.
