Learn How Discovery Education Can Help Prepare Your Students for Success

I have witnessed the steady improvement in my students’ writing based on “feeling” to evidence. Students apply methodical thinking and evaluation like scientists and engineers to address abstract problem solving and reflect on issues with peers to develop solutions. The key component aiding my students in this process has been the scaffolding and open questioning found in Discovery Education's Science Techbook and SOS Instructional Strategies.
