SCALE/QED DVD Series: A New K-16 Science Education Partnership in the LA Basin


"One major component of SCALE's work is the development of Immersion Units and the accompanying professional development for teachers. The units are a coherent series of lessons designed to guide students in developing deep conceptual understanding that is aligned with the standards and key concepts in science. Further, Immersion Units are intended to build a learning culture in the classroom and sustain students' enthusiasm while they learn rigorous science content.

In the Los Angeles basin, SCALE formed a strategic partnership with the California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) through the Quality Educator Development (QED) project and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to develop this vision. These videos are a record of that ongoing collaborative development process, professional development for teachers, and implementation of science immersion units in the classroom."
