Overview of Process • Academic Work Group – January, 2006 • Dr. Andy Anderson (MSU), Co-Chair • Dr. Robert Poel (WMU), Co-Chair • Sub-committees for Earth Space, Biology, Physics, Chemistry • First Draft to State Board – May, 2006 • Public/Web Review – May 15 – July 1, 2006 • National Review – June, 2006 • Final Approval by State Board – August, 2006
Content Expectations Goal These expectations were developed to provide a description of what students should know and be able to do in Scienceby the end of high school for postsecondary success – college, careers and community.
Content Expectations Goal The Expectations provide a foundation for curriculum and assessment development that represents rigorous and relevant learning for ALL high school students.
Content Expectations Goal The Expectations: • Revise and extend the current Michigan Curriculum Framework High School Standards and Benchmarks. • They will also becomethe basis forthe non-ACT elements within theMichigan Merit Exam.
Rigor, Relevance, and Applied Learning Standards These Expectationswill engage students to… • Master content knowledge • Have the ability to apply that knowledge to analyze and propose solutions to real-world problems • Make connections between what they read, hear, and learn in class and the world around them
Rigor, Relevance, and Applied Learning Standards These Expectations will: • Challenge students intellectually • Require that students make a substantial investment in their own learning • Foster the development of cognitive abilities • Promote inquiry

Levels of Content • Pre-requisites • Knowledge needed when entering high school (K – 7) • Essential • Critical knowledge regardless of course • Aligned to large-scale assessment • Core • Specific to the discipline (course) • Required for credit in required areas (Biology, and Chemistry or Physics) • Preparation for advanced study
Choice All All Choice All All All All All All All All Credit for high school Earth and Space Science, Biology, Physics, and Chemistry will be defined as meeting BOTH essential and core subject area content expectations. Represents required for graduation Science Content Structure
Levels of Construct • Identifying • Recall, define, relate, represent basic principles • Using • Make sense of the natural world, predict and explain observations • Inquiry • Identify and explain patterns, habits of mind • Reflecting • Critique and justify strengths and weaknesses of scientific knowledge
Next Steps • Public/Web Review – May – July 1, 2006 • National Review – June, 2006 • State Board Approval – August, 2006 • Statewide Launch – September, 2006 • Model Lesson Development – October, 2006 to June, 2007
