In March, the teachers from Blessed Sacrament, St. Dominic, St. Francis, and St. Peter continued working on their science curriculum maps.  The 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teachers met in grade level groups to add details to their maps.  The maps contain seven components: standards, essential questions, content, skills, assessment, resources, and technology.  Below you will find information explaining the final three parts.

  • Assessment:  summative products and performances that show learning.
