The CMS Vision for Science Teaching and Learning

The CMS Science staff provides supervision and support for all science instruction. We design, align, implement, and revise curriculum documents, programs, and professional development that support the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.  We emphasize inquiry, problem-solving, and communication. We want students to experience science as a creative, sense-making venture of solving challenging problems individually and collaboratively. The development of the ability to analyze patterns and relationships is essential for effective problem solving. Students should have the opportunity to evaluate research and data from current scientific endeavors, as well as the chance to conduct research on their own age appropriate questions.
