This STEAM program has been constructed with the intent to enhance the learning and teaching within schools. Our text is structured to be user friendly for all teachers, caregivers, and students, irrespective of their background, and is exciting for students to follow, and simpler than many alternative texts.
We have endeavored to keep our offering interesting to students, and teachers alike, by including focussed introductory topics, authored by a forensic professional working with the police, real life cases (experienced by our forensic chemist author!) as well as a wide variety of TEKS/ELPS aligned activities and assignments, some of which include; role play, essay writing, use of the arts, as well as the more traditional practice tests. Assessment tools can be purchased. An assessment generator and interactive software tool provide assessments by TEKS by skill levels.
Throughout the course vocabulary is a central focus. Literacy strategies are included, as well as numerous language learning techniques. A series of reader activity crime scene books has been produced, and activities that demand students to learn and apply algebra I/geometry skills is included. This content will assist all students, but particularly will help students who struggle with English language and mathematics.
The course has been written by educators who care passionately about providing the opportunity to all students for post-secondary education, enabling quality applicants for all careers. We have developed innovative programs, so that students will be engaged and achieve high success in their course work and examinations. Students, just as the professionals in the field, are expected to develop testable hypotheses and create logical connections between the design of the experiment and the scientific concepts.
Each of our Teacher Editions are full of detail and instruction, along with section tests and unit exams.
The Student Editions consist of fun and informative investigations that enable continuous activities to aid learning and provide lots of practice of forensic investigation. In 2014 the TPS forensic program was the sole adopted course in Texas. The materials have now been greatly enhanced to enable students to prepare for a career in forensic science.
