Clark, M. How can educators embed scientific literacy into the intermediate classroom of disadvantaged groups? (2021) The achievement gap has been a widespread problem amongst minority groups, specifically African American students. The data reflects a continuous trend of underachievement caused by environmental factors at home and in school. As the state transitions to the 2019 Minnesota Science standards, teachers must learn to develop scientific literacy into the intermediate classroom and attempt to close the achievement gap amongst minority students. The capstone project uses the Sheltered Intervention Observation model, Marzano Framework, and A Framework for K-12 Science Education to answer the capstone question, How can educators embed scientific literacy into the intermediate classroom of disadvantaged groups? The capstone project is a three to four week fifth grade life science curriculum that focuses on active learning, cooperative learning, and digital learning.
