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 Achieve’s EQuIP Peer Review Panel and have received a quality rating. The release dates are marked with an asterisk to distinguish that they are dependent on a positive review.
Released OpenSciEd units will be available at this page for download as a PDF or as an editable Google document that can be copied to a personal folder or downloaded as a Microsoft Word document. We have also partnered with a printer and a kit provider for those who would like to purchase hard copies of the materials. OpenSciEd’s three-year middle school science course will be completed by Winter 2022.
