2005 Alabama Course of Study: Science
The goal of Alabama’s K-12 science curriculum is the achievement of scientific literacy by all Alabama students. A scientifically literateperson is one who has a sound basis in scientific knowledge, the ability to use scientific processes and technology to understand science-related decisions and problems, and the ability to apply science to the increasing challenges of an ever-changing world. The relationship among these aspects of scientific literacy which provides a blueprint for scientific literacy for all Alabama students and illustrates the two basic components for establishing scientific literacy — the minimum required content that students should master and the process and application skills that are the mechanisms for structuring, integrating, and teaching the content standards. This goal serves as the apex from which all content standards are derived and is the key element in the design of Alabama’s K-12 science curriculum.
