The Level D Teacher Guidebook contains detailed 4-pages lesson plans for 36 weeks of multi-day instruction.
Lessons are designed to model the way scientific study works in high school or college laboratory classes and beyond. The week begins with the parent guiding students through a hands-on activity that introduces a fundamental scientific principle, with detailed instructions provided for each weekly activity. Questions and suggested answers are provided to assist your children in recording and analyzing their findings.
Each lesson plan includes a "Teacher To Teacher" section with facts and insights to help engage your child's attention, and extended teaching activities to build upon and reinforce the principle being taught each week.
A multiple-choice assessment quiz is included for each lesson, to allow students to demonstrate mastery of the concepts and help long-term retention.
