How Do Schools Use EBS

Event-Based Science meets National Science Education Standards!

 

 

How Do Schools Use EBS?

Event-Based Science is a new way to teach middle school science. It is an award-winning, standards-based program in which newsworthy events establish the relevance of science topics; authentic tasks create the need-to-know more about those topics; and lively interviews, photographs, Web pages, and inquiry-based science activities create a desire to know more about those topics.

There are several ways for schools to use EBS modules:

  • EBS Modules can be used to create a comprehensive middle school science curriculum.
  • One or two EBS modules can be combined with other standards-based units to create a comprehensive middle school science curriculum.
  • One or two EBS modules can be used to supplement a textbook-based course as a means of moving instruction toward the National Science Education Standards.

Options are explained below:

A comprehensive middle school science curriculum consisting of four EBS modules each year.

 

 

 

 

 

These are only examples. The EBS Institute will help you develop a configuration that meets your state's Science Education Standards.
