    California Adopts Discovery Education’s Award-Winning Science Techbook for Use in K-8 Classrooms Districtwide

    Upon the recommendation of its Instructional Quality Commission, the California State Board of Education recently adopted Discovery Education’s Science Techbook for California NGSS for use in K-8 classrooms statewide through its state adoption process. Discovery Education’s Techbooks are currently used by approximately 5.6 million students across all 50 states and Canada.

    The California State Board of Education’s approval of the Discovery Education Science Techbook for California NGSS clears the way for school systems across the state to purchase and integrate these resources into classroom instruction. Discovery Education’s Techbooks support a comprehensive curriculum, can be integrated in any teaching environment, including one-to-one, one-to-many configurations, and when used in combination with print materials and hands-on kits, can create unique blended learning experiences. In addition, the Techbook series saves California teachers time with a comprehensive design that places model lessons, student activities and performance-based assessments at their fingertips.  To learn more about the adoption of the Science Techbook , visit:
