Science Curriculum and Instruction

Jump to: navigation, search

A curriculum is a course or path. It is meant to be connected and integrated and it should lead to educational attainment. The goal of a science curriculum is a thorough understanding of scientific concepts necessary to succeed in the workplace and to thrive in one's daily life.  Curriculum materials should be chosen to fit the science education policy that has been articulated and founded in Science Standards. This practice is called science instruction. The Education Network has made science education a priority for member economies, and APEC has supported many projects, activities, and research to further the goals of developing competent and effective science teachers and engaged and learning students.
