Abstract

For years, scientific literacy has been declining among US student due to a reduction in science education at elementary school level. The result is middle school students with a deficit of scientific literacy that carries over into high school inhibiting opportunities for higher level inquiry and science knowledge. Additionally, we have generations of graduates ill-prepared to compete in our highly scientific global economy. To address this conundrum, a new science curriculum was developed to incorporate the 5e Lesson Plan Model coupled with the Next Generation Science Standards with the aim of increasing levels of scientific literacy, cognition, and student achievement.
