Purposeful Design Science Life Science Teacher Edition
The Life Science Teacher Manual is an important part of the curriculum, including a lot of additional information not found in the student text. The front pages offer an overview of the course and each component; how to prepare a lesson; and an explanation of the scientific method, measurements, and lab safety. You will then find instruction for each chapter and each lesson. For each chapter, a list of key ideas and vocabulary; summary; and lesson background are given. As you begin each lesson (numbered: i.e. 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3), there are objectives, lesson-specific vocabulary, materials needed for the lesson (not the lab), an introduction, discussion questions, activities, and answers to the lesson review. Small format student pages are shown for each lesson. The lesson shows when it is time for a lab, along with the supplies needed. Small format lab manual pages are included with suggested answers written in red. Try This boxes are found throughout the lessons for additional opportunities to learn. Additional resources such as blackline master PDFs, chapter tests and answer keys are found online with information on accessing those online resources included inside the Teacher Manual.
