"By States for States"
Ten partner states volunteered to join this effort. These states provide the vision for our work by collaborating on a scope and sequence, design specifications, and instructional model. The OpenSciEd partner states recruited over 900 field test teachers from their schools and districts. These states and teachers have committed the funds and time for professional development, teaching the field test units, and participation in extensive data collection to inform revisions. Their voice is carried throughout the OpenSciEd materials.
