Learning List recently reviewed Edgenuity’s Integrated Physics and Chemistry, Earth and Space Science, and Physics courses. These video-based courses address the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and are appropriate for blended learning and/or self-paced instruction. However, teacher involvement improves rigor and increases the likelihood of student success.

A guiding question, such as “What is the relationship between hypotheses, theories, and laws?” forms the basis of each lesson. A variety of teachers provide instruction in short video lectures, supported by notes, demonstrations, guided practice, and brief checks for understanding. Some lessons include activities such as using Gizmos to explore Mystery Powder Analysis. Each lesson concludes with a teacher-led review, practice activities, and a short quiz. Each unit ends with a multiple-choice test. [Read more. . . ]

Virtual labs and classroom based wet-labs increase the rigor of lessons and facilitate student mastery of key concepts. Many labs include a downloadable student guide with step-by-step instructions and resources to support data collection and analysis. Labs conclude with a “reflection” activity and a lab report. Instruction is grade appropriate for high school students.

Throughout instruction, students have access to audio readers, a searchable glossary, and online highlighting, note taking, and translation tools, as well as an interactive calculator and the periodic table of elements.
