    The rigorous research and development process behind the STC™ Program ensures that the learning experiences contained in each unit reflect current scientific thinking, are pedagogically sound, and are developmentally age-appropriate for students.

    Each STC™ unit is based on a four-stage learning cycle that is grounded in educational research and practice:

    • First, students focus on what they already know about a topic.
    • Second, students explore a scientific phenomenon or concept, following a well-structured sequence of classroom investigations.
    • Third, students reflect on their observations, record them in journals, draw conclusions, and share their findings with others.
    • Finally, students apply their learning to real-life situations and to other areas of the curriculum.

    In addition to this basal science curriculum, we also offer the STC Literacy Series™ for grades K–6. This series balances the needs of emerging readers with states' science, math and social studies standards. Content is presented in a colorful, engaging, and age-appropriate manner ideal for reading time.
