Getting Started

What is the New Visions Science Curriculum?

Over the last five years, Instructional Specialists from New Visions for Public Schools, along with science teachers from across our network of schools, have developed a strong scope and sequence for Living Environment and Earth Science, along with a rich set of curated and created resources for teaching these courses.

Curricular materials are aligned with the New York State Core Curriculum (Regents exams) and Common Core Learning Standards, with alignment to the new NY Science Learning Standards in progress. The New Visions Science Curriculum provides course-wide planning materials, including a curriculum map, pacing and spiraling guidelines, and tools for standards alignment. Each unit is designed to equip science educators with a variety of high-quality resources, including both teacher and student-facing materials and assessments.

We believe the science curricula we share here are never complete; we always welcome feedback, experiences, and findings from teachers using these materials!
