Recently I was introduced to a Basic Science Mysteries with Reading Enhancements by Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum, and I have become a huge fan!
Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum for Independent Learners
My eldest (7th grade) and I have been working on steering her school lessons to a more independent setting. She enjoyed being able to accomplish that with this curriculum. It’s set up in such a way that your older student will be able to tackle their lessons, get the review worksheet done, AND grade their own work if necessary!
I can’t stress how important and how significant it is for your kids, particularly those in Middle or High School, to learn how to work independently on their school work.
I still read through each lesson before my daughter tackled them because she loves to chat about what she is learning. I also want to ensure the lessons are accurate and present the topic well. So even though she does the reading and review questions independently, I’m still on top of things. For a busy mom like myself, I appreciate the ease of read of the lessons without jeopardizing valuable information. This makes reading through her lessons easy on me!
Basic Science Mysteries with Reading Enhancements Features
The Basic Science Mysteries course covers Earth (and solar system), Life Science, and the Periodic Table of Elements. Each lesson begins with a story of sorts, like a mystery or something that gets your student thinking about e day’s topic.
Each chapter comes within its own booklet, plus a booklet for each chapters review questions. The Basic Science Mysteries course has five chapters, which means there is a total of 10 booklets. They aren’t huge and I actually think it’s pretty creative and unique to separate them this way.
In addition to the booklets you’ll receive a teacher packet (TRK). In it you’ll find basic instructions on setting the curriculum up, and you’ll have full access to answer guides for quizzes and tests. In the TRK you’ll also find the Quizzes and Tests, as well as their answer guides. The curriculum pack provides you everything you need to complete the course.
Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum (PAC) is working on incorporating QR codes into all of their course. Which means, students will be able to access extra content via a smartphone! As of right now there is one course that has this feature available, and that is the Biology Course.
