New York City SEPUP Core Curriculum


SEPUP Core Curriculum from LAB-AIDS is designed to turn your students into active learning participants who possess a continual thirst for answers. SEPUP's approach is based on the beliefs that understanding the interaction between science, technology and the environment is imperative to an informed society. SEPUP also stresses that decisions should be based on science and discovery rather than mere words.

With the SEPUP Curriculum Programs, students are encouraged to question why things are and how sci- ence plays a specific role in their immediate world. What's more, students are continually engaged in the learning process, utilizing guided scientific inquiry to build on ideas. Essentially, your students are prompt- ed to dig deeper for knowledge and to take that knowledge further.

SEPUP works. In our pre-service science teacher training program at Buffalo State College, we use SEPUP activities to show students how science should be taught: in an interactive, inquiry-oriented manner which stresses active student involvement. In my visits to many middle school classrooms over the years, I have also seen how SEPUP can adapt to a variety of teaching styles and modes of classroom management. The extensive national field-testing of all SEPUP courses and modules builds validity and reliability into the final product."

"Science and Sustainability has changed the way I teach - students no longer ask, "when will I ever use this?' because they see the direct connection between science and their world."
