Technical Training Aids has been on the cutting-edge of education and technical training for more than 50 years, and we see schools and teachers facing more challenges now than ever. They are struggling to meet 5E standards and the needs of students with a wide variety of educational attainment and language challenges. That is why we are eager to share news about an exciting new curriculum that is transforming classrooms around the globe. We are proud to introduce Science Bits.
So, what is Science Bits?
Science Bits is the first curriculum to integrate the Cognitive Science Theory of Conceptual Change while maintaining fidelity to 5E standards. Science Bits facilitates teaching that promotes deep understanding and instigates conceptual change necessary for learning science.
What makes Science Bits unique?
Science Bits is a comprehensive science curriculum designed to help teachers facilitate research based instructional practices recommended for science instruction. Science Bits integrates best practices for curriculum, teacher instruction, assessment, and deep conceptual learning. Students experience real-world, skills-based exercises intentionally designed to peak engagement and critical thinking.
Other features that makes Science Bits a unique product include the a complete Spanish translation of the material that can be accessed by the flip of a toggle switch. With attributes like a Glossary for each unit, not only would this be critical to limited English-speaking students, but the ease of accessing the dual language content could even assist in language learning for those students.
Simultaneously addressing the learning needs of both advanced and remedial students can be a struggle. The creators of Science Bits realize that not all students are on the same learning level. Science Bits offers customized learning plans for individual students, while still keeping the class on the same topic.
While Science Bits primarily focuses around the 5E standards, the curriculum can also be customized to your state standards! Contact Us today to find out how we can customize Science Bits to be the perfect classroom solution for you and your students specific needs!
