An Overview of Courses and Materials

 

With new technologies and discoveries emerging every day, it is impertive that we utilize current materials and cutting edge technology to ensure that our students our prepared for a quickly changing world. Because of this, the district has chosen an approach to Science based on the the forward-looking Next-Generation Science Standards.  In our K-6 band, we utilize a variety of programs to cover the vast range of content, including the NGSS aligned InSpire Science, as well as the all-digital Discovery Science. These core programs up supplemented through hands-on kits, both self-developed and purchased through Asset Stem Education. . Science programs are addtionally supplemented through materials from Scholastic Learning, and self-developed modules designed to meet the requirements of the state exams.

Our Science programming extends to our use of technology. Every student in the district participates in coding and digital citizenship instruction starting in Kindergarten. Students are likewise trained to utilize a number of digital work environments, from Windows PCs to Macs, Ipads to Kindles, to the emerging range of new device categories. Every Woodland Hills student will be technologically literate and future ready.
