AUSL and CPS are recommending a new, high-quality K-8 science curriculum: Amplify Science.
Authored by UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, Amplify Science was designed from the ground up for the Next Generation Science Standards to teach students to think, read, write, and argue like real scientists and engineers. The program combines literacy-rich activities with hands-on learning and digital tools to engage students in exploring a compelling real-world phenomenon in every unit.
For high school, AUSL is recommending that our teachers use the phenomenon-based units on the CPS Knowledge Center, which were developed by teams of CPS teachers (including several from AUSL).
