Unit Release Schedule

Middle School Unit Release Schedule

We’re Ready for the 2021-2022 School Year!

OpenSciEd’s full middle school curriculum (grades 6-8) will be available in time for the upcoming school year. We currently have 12 units available for download and the remaining 6 units will be released in time for them to be taught during the 2021-22 school year. All units can be downloaded free of charge from the Access Instructional Materials page. The length of each unit can be seen in the Unit Length visual, with each day being 45 minutes. 

Unit Release Dates

Each OpenSciEd unit undergoes an 18-month development process that includes external reviews, a robust field test, and revision. OpenSciEd will be releasing units at the end of this process and after they are evaluated by NextGenScience’s EQuIP Peer Review Panel and have received a quality rating. If your school system is considering using the OpenSciEd instructional materials, we would be happy to provide a presentation and answer any questions you may have.
