The West Virginia Department of Education has approved the Discovery Education Science Techbook™ for use as a core instructional resource for elementary, middle, and high school science courses through its state adoption process.
The West Virginia Department of Education adopted all elementary, middle and high school Discovery Education Science Techbook courses, including Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Space Science, and Physics, with 100% coverage of West Virginia’s Next Generation Content Standards and Objectives for Science. Discovery Education’s award-winning Science Techbook has now been added to the West Virginia Department of Education’s Official Multiple List of Approved Resources, which school districts statewide use to identify the instructional resources that best meet the needs of their students.
Using an inquiry-based format built on the Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate (5E) model, each Science Techbook includes standards-aligned content such as video, audio, text, and interactives with hands-on activities, as well as virtual labs. Additional student features include bilingual text-to-speech and leveled reading tools, and note-taking, and highlighting capabilities. Embedded formative assessment opportunities help educators monitor student progress, and like all Discovery Education digital textbooks, the Science Techbook works on any device and can be implemented in a variety of instructional settings.
