The Science Standards of Learning Enhanced Scope and Sequence is a resource intended to help teachers align their classroom instruction with the Science Standards of Learning that were adopted by the Board of Education in January 2003. The Enhanced Scope and Sequence contains the following:

  • Units organized by topics from the 2003 Science Standards of Learning Sample Scope and Sequence. Each topic lists the following:

  • Sample lesson plans aligned with the essential understandings, knowledge, and skills from the Curriculum Framework. Each lesson contains most or all of the following:

  • An overview

  • Identification of the related Standard(s) of Learning

  • A list of objectives

  • A list of materials needed

  • A description of the instructional activity

  • One or more sample assessments

  • One or more follow-ups/extensions

  • A list of resources

  • Sample released SOL test items for each Organizing Topic.

School divisions and teachers can use the Enhanced Scope and Sequence as a resource for developing sound curricular and instructional programs. These materials are intended as examples of ways the understandings, knowledge, and skills might be presented to students in a sequence of lessons that has been aligned with the Standards of Learning. Teachers who use the Enhanced Scope and Sequence should correlate the essential understandings, knowledge, and skills with available instructional resources as noted in the materials and determine the pacing of instruction as appropriate. This resource is not a complete curriculum and is neither required nor prescriptive, but it can be a valuable instructional tool.
