CCGPS 9th - 12th Grade
Students in a science classroom are actively engaged in the hands-on exploration of the world around them. The Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) are the foundation from which all instruction is built. Utilizing teaching strategies influenced by Webb's Depth of Knowledge, students are equipped to understand scientific concepts, develop higher order thinking, and inquiry-based skills. The students learn subject matter disciplines in the context of inquiry, technology, personal and social perspectives, and the history and nature of science. The addition of lab experiences and a hands-on approach utilizes explorations that investigate and analyze scientific questions.
