On June 9, 2016, the State Board of Education approved the K-12 Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for Science. On July 18, 2019, the State Board of Education approved the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for the following high school science courses: Astronomy, Botany, Ecology, Entomology, Epidemiology, Forensic Science, Geology, Human Anatomy & Physiology, Meteorology, Microbiology, Oceanography, and Zoology. The 2019-2020 school year will be utilized to inform educators of the new standards. These Science GSE courses should be implemented during the 2020-2021 school year.
The Science Frameworks provide one way that teachers, schools, and districts might organize and teach the Georgia Standards of Excellence withing units. Frameworks include curriculum maps, pacing guides, and instructional segments. All segments are phenomenon-based and are structured in a 5E format. In addition, each instructional segment includes dedicated supports for struggling learners.
