Students are motivated to learn in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction, serve to organize meaningful learning, and promote the excitement and joy of learning.
Students actively engage in science and engineering practices and mathematical reasoning to deepen their understanding of core ideas. Students work together to define problems, conduct investigations, make models, use computational thinking, write explanations, and discuss and present findings.
Our 21st century technology is designed to support a seamless implementation of our curricula. It includes all hands-on equipment needed for the classroom and top-of-the-line electronic books, probes, and mobile devices.
We are committed to providing comprehensive support services for districts implementing our programs. From face-to-face workshops to our ever-expanding Cyber professional-development resources, we can tailor-fit a complete solution to your needs.
EarthComm® is a comprehensive, project-based, secondary level Earth and space sciences program. It includes student learning materials, teacher resources, teacher-support networks, and assessment tools. EarthComm also features a robust Web site filled with student and teacher resources regularly updated by AGI.
EarthComm® promotes systems thinking.
In EarthComm®, students learn about the interactions among the various parts of the Earth system by reflecting on the ways in which matter and energy flow through the Earth system, and the different ways in which Earth’s processes occur over time and space.
EarthComm® fosters Earth stewardship.
With EarthComm®, students discover the wonder and importance of Earth and space science by studying it where it counts—in their community. EarthComm® utilizes local and regional issues and concerns to stimulate problem-solving activities, and to foster a sense of Earth stewardship by students in their communities.
EarthComm® fits your standards.
EarthComm® reflects the full scope of Earth and space science content standards for high school—those identified as the Disciplinary Core Ideas in A Framework for K-12 Science Education and those of individual states and districts.
