Good-bye dissecting frogs, hello saving endangered tortoises. That’s
what you’ll find in a Meaningful Science Consortium class, one of three
science instructional development systems being used in the Chicago
High School Transformation Plan.
Cox, a ninth grade reading teacher at Dyett High School, jumped at the
chance a few years ago to implement the transformation curriculum in
her classroom. "We knew that if we didn't do something drastic, we
would get shut down," she said. "[Now], the culture has changed
dramatically." Cox discusses how the new curriculum has helped
rejuvenate her classroom.
