Welcome to Science IDEAS Online!

Science IDEAS is an instructional model designed to accelerate student achievement in science, reading comprehension and writing. Researched and developed during the last two decades this knowledge-based comprehension model integrates science learning with reading comprehension and writing in a daily two-hour time block.

Students in grades 3-5 are engaged in a variety of inquiry-based hands-on, reading comprehension, writing and concept mapping activities to build students' conceptual understanding of core science concepts while improving their ability to read challenging content area texts. Students in grades 6-8 and Post Secondary classes participate in a modified Science IDEAS model in their content-focused science courses.
