taught on a multitude of levels, depending on the grade of the students. The State Standards of Alabama are closely followed, and the accredited
schools of this county focus on instruction that is driven by assessment data, student aptitude, and performance.
In Science, teachers begin in the primary grades by developing the children’s discovery using hands-on techniques. The teaching of Science throughout
the secondary years is done by engrossing the students in demonstrations, experiments, diagrams, instructional games and puzzles, the use of analogies
in the relation of science to the world around us, and explanations. The incorporation of reading and writing plays a vital role in science, as well as mathematics.

Chalk Talk: Why Hands-On Education Works
Back in the day, many of us can remember school as sitting at our desk, alone, listening to a lesson from the teacher and then getting to work on the assignment given…with a worksheet. Worksheets today are wonderful to use, but sparingly. What works is learning by doing, especially in science and math. Research shows that students learn much more effectively by participating in small groups and actually using their hands to discover certain concepts. Whether it be an observation of a flowering plant, the creation of a terrarium, or building a model, science is best taught using this instructional approach.
