This is a DVD that has my entire General Science/Earth Science curriculum that teaches the California State Science Standards. At the end of the school year, students take the California Earth Science Standards CST exam. This curriculum covers concepts of chemistry, atmosphere, climate, global warming, astronomy, geology and motion. There is also some lessons pertaining to metric conversions.
I have taught this curriculum for the last 14 years to all levels of students--resource, language learners and regular education students. I have shared these lessons with my colleagues and I have written and won grants and awards for many of these projects.
This DVD provides PowerPoint presentations, labs, activities and projects for an entire year of college prep general science/earth science. I have included exams for major units along with study guides, final exams and final reviews for both the first and second semester. There are pacing guides and curriculum maps to help with planning. My school has 50-minute periods so my pacing guide reflects this. It should be fairly easy to take these pacing guides and make them guides for a block schedule. Each year I put together a yearly plan of all concepts I need to cover. This, along with my course syllabus and the grading program I use in excel are also included.
