CPO Science provides everything you need to teach a wide variety of topics, systematically organized for you into complete, coordinated, inquiry-based teaching and learning systems.
Our Teaching and Learning Systems help you teach more effectively and meet state and national standards. Plus, from the very first lesson, science is exciting and accessible to all students, with the widest range of achievement levels and learning styles.
Only CPO Science features completely integrated materials within each system, including student text, investigations manual, equipment, teacher’s guide, and technology tools.
The unique CPO Science “one idea per page” format used in the Student Textbook makes complex concepts instantly accessible to all students.
You’ll find illustrations, diagrams and supplemental information right next to the relevant text on each page, while detailed headings and side notes guide students through the content. Important concepts are repeated in different ways to support multiple learning styles. Vocabulary words are defined as they are introduced and reading strategies are built right into the text. Chapter assessments, skill sections, real world connections, and activities extend and enhance learning.
Science learning begins with active investigation.
The CPO Science Investigations Manual provides practical, engaging experiences that teach, reinforce and extend key science concepts.
Like working scientists, students design experiments, learn the proper use of lab and measurement equipment, collect and analyze data, and construct and test conclusions. Each activity includes learning objectives, a key question, step-by-step instructions packed with illustrations, pictures and diagrams, blackline masters, and easy-to-use features such as icons, tips and safety instructions. Designed for students of all ability
levels, including English Language Learners, each manual coordinates with the corresponding student text, lab equipment, and teacher support materials.
Nothing engages students more than making science happen for themselves. Each extensive suite of CPO Science lab equipment complements the student readings and investigations.
Every equipment module within the suite features CPO Science’s own innovative design, accurate instrumentation and comes with step-by-step set-up instructions for both student and teacher. Quality-made in the USA of durable, attractive hardwood. A suite of lab equipment is included with each class set of student books. Additional equipment modules are available separately in specially priced equipment kits.
The CPO Science teacher’s toolkit combines a teacher-designed guide with powerful, practical technology tools.
The CPO Science Teacher’s Guide includes background information and sample dialogues for every Investigation and Student reading. Detailed lesson plans in a consistent format, approaches to multiple learning strategies, sample student investigation data, and assessment answers are just some of the other convenient features you’ll use every day. Each unit offers a variety of effective, ongoing assessment options including skill and practice worksheets, ExamView® Test Bank software, pre-assessments, chapter assessments, activities, and lab blackline answer sheets.
The electronic book and lab manual contains the entire student text and lab manual in PDF format to help students navigate content with the click of a mouse. You’ll also find teaching easier with content-rich Teacher’s Resources CD-ROM, Teaching Illustrations CD-ROM, and Lesson Organizer. CPO Science provides ongoing Professional Development through our popular hands-on Summer Institutes, Staff Development programs, and Conference Workshops. Each Teacher’s Toolkit includes one teacher’s guide. The guide is also available separately.
