The basis of the Science Approach B: Content Foundation to Build Inquiry approach is that students learn best when they see a purpose for what they are learning outside of the classroom. In the courses that make up the Illinois Institute of Technology’s IDS Curriculum: Science Approach B: Content Foundation to Build Inquiry, the developers challenge students to think by relating content to authentic and relevant learning experiences so they can easily learn science content and scientific processes; therefore driving students to not only wonder about and gain science knowledge, but comprehend, analyze, apply, synthesize and evaluate level of science reasoning.

Glencoe/McGraw HillThe IIT IDS Curriculum is a full collaboration with additional resources from Baxter, Inc., Biotechnology Institute, Glencoe/McGraw Hill and Pearson-Prentice Hall publishing, along with monthly professional development series and on-site teacher support. For each content area, the developers created 30 model lessons that emphasize aspects of Nature of Science and knowledge of Scientific Inquiry and the following resources are used to implement the IIT IDS curriculum in biology, chemistry and physics.

Pearson-Prentice Hall

Baxter Inc.Baxter’s SCIENCE@WORK education initiative ensures that Chicago Public School teachers and students incorporate biotechnology into the classroom.
