SD Science Translations Documents

The SD Science Translations documents are:

  • a supplemental resource to help science educators translate the SD Science Standards into classroom practice
  • created by South Dakota science educators with the SD DOE
  • based on the 2015 adopted SD Science Standards
  • a representation of how a group of SD teachers, at a given grade level, might bundle performance expectations into instructional units of study
  • comprised of storylines and examples of phenomena, formative assessment, and three-dimensional performance outcomes provided to aid teachers in designing their own plans for instruction
  • intended to be a “go to” document that an educator might keep bookmarked and use often to support and inform their planning
