A consortium of world-class curriculum developers is completing the middle school classroom materials and associated professional learning materials. The Developers Consortium draws from experts in the fields of science education, curriculum design, learning sciences, professional learning, and data analysis, ensuring that the materials are effective in the classroom. All OpenSciEd units are being reviewed by Achieve’s Science Peer Review Panel using the EQuIP Rubric at two points in the unit development process, during the field test and before the public release of the units.
