Welcome to the TDS Science Department!The Tierra del Sol Middle School Science Department looks to carry on a proud tradition of high level student-centered science curriculum.
We believe that rather than sitting still and passively absorbing information, students should be actively engaged with the content they are learning. We use numerous tools and strategies to help ensure that all students achieve success and enjoy their time here with us at TDS. Some of these tools include: technology, sense-making science notebooks, flexible grouping and integration with other curricular areas. Teachers act more as guides to create innovative project-based learning experiences that will engage our diverse group of students in meaningful and relevant projects through which they will not only learn the science content, but develop and apply 21st century skills and knowledge.
21st Century Skills
- Critical Thinking/Problem Solving/Decision Making
- Creativity and Innovation
Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
- Research and Information Fluency
