Students are introduced to a real-world anchor phenomenon in every unit. Our units are organized around the storyline learning model, creating a three-dimensional learning framework. This relevant phenomenon hooks students and encourages them to ask important questions as they investigate and collaborate to explain, make predictions, and solve problems.
All concepts are launched with a real-world investigative phenomenon and related “Can You Explain? questions directly tied to the Anchor Phenomenon for each unit. This provides multiple pathways for students to demonstrate their sensemaking through the development of models and scientific explanations in the claim, evidence, and reasoning format.
Students revisit the anchor phenomenon repeatedly as they solve problems related to the Unit Project.
