In everything we do at the CREC Resource Group (CRG), we believe in connecting, and empowering educators to set all learners up for success. Every student deserves a high-quality education, and every teacher deserves the support and resources to make that a reality. In our science work, we carry out this belief through our Catalyst Next Generation Science Curriculum and Community.
Since 2017, Capitol Region Education Council (CREC) has been working diligently with a consortium of educators from over 90 school districts to build a K-12 curriculum and online learning community aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). These continuous efforts to enhance student achievement in the science classroom have led to the development of equitable supports and resources aimed at reducing barriers and raising student engagement.
Our K-12 Catalyst Curriculum is comprised of grade-level or content-area courses with units that:
Each of our K-12 courses are housed in our online professional learning community, Catalyst Community, through our learning management system, Canvas. Each community includes the following:
To support districts that partner with us, we offer a complimentary 1-hour, virtual on-boarding session for both K-5 and 6-12 teachers.
