Why Use a Grade-Based Science Course for Each Child?

  • Traditionally for high school science, there is a set sequence of study. It is easier to use grade-based science in high school.
  • However, if you have two high school students, you could use the same grade-based high school science subject.
  • If your student who plans to pursue a career in science, individualize science instruction at the appropriate grade level.
  • When your students are overly competitive, it might be helpful to have each one in a different grade level of science.
  • Students who have a higher reading level and prefer independent study may like a grade-based science course.
