Welcome to Salim Science

Welcome to Salim Science!  DJUSD has begun implementing the Next Generation Science Standards, adopted by the state of California in the Fall of 2013. This new approach calls for students to engage in active inquiry in the classroom, and to developm mental models for how the world works, rather than just acquire facts that don't necessarily cohere into a whole. 

 

In addition, the new standards call for engineering challenges to be ubiquitous throughout science and math education. Students should have the opportunity to engage in the design process, using their creativity and imagination to apply science models to real-life exploration.  They also call for using communicative skills such as reading, writing and dialogue to process and articulate their understanding of science concepts.
