We changed our courses this year. The freshman now take earth science, then sophomores take biology, and Juniors take either chemistry, physics, or intro to physics and chemistry. ________________________________ From: kact-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:kact-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Stockam, Angela Sent: Monday, March 31, 2008 9:29 AM To: kact@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [KACT] earth and space science I am interested in how other districts address the KSDE graduation requirement for 3 credits of science, specifically the requirement for earth and space science concepts. I copied the sentence below directly from the KSBE regulations for graduation requirements: "three units of science, which shall include physical, biological, and earth and space science concepts and which shall include at least one unit as a laboratory course" Do you offer an earth science course? If so, at what level? If not, where do you cover the above requirement? At Maize, we have Geoscience which is a district graduation requirement and is offered as our freshman science course. What do the rest of you do? Any input would be appreciated! Hope you all are having a great year!
