Science Curriculum Alignment
Science K-7 GLCE Labels
Science Companion Documents K-7
The companion documents provide instructional and assessment ideas and examples.
Science K-7 Power Standard and Content Expectations
The K-7 power standards were developed by the M2 consortium in conjunction with local teacher experts. They contain all of the GLCE and are organized into teaching sequences.
The GLCE for K-7 Science provide clarity for what students are expected to know and be able to do by the end of each grade.
2009 MEAP Science Item Descriptors
These documents should be used in conjunction with the 2009 MEAP Item Analysis Reports for grades 5 and 8 in science to assist in deciphering areas of strength as well as areas to be targeted for improvement.
Looking at K-7 Science Across the Grades
High School Content Expectations
High School Clarification Documents
Earth Science HS Clarifications
Essential Content Expectations are those expectations that ALL students are expected to have knowledge of upon graduation and are assessable on the Michigan Merit Exam (MME). They are denoted in the content expectations with an Upper Case Letter.
Where Did Those HS Pre-Requisites Go?
The first version of HSCE for Science included pre-requisite expectations. When the K-7 GLCE were developed the HS pre-requisites were incorporated into the K-7 GLCE. The attached files indicate where those expectations are incorporated into the K-7 GLCE. These files were created by the TBA ISD.
College and Career Readiness Standards
The College and Career Readiness Standards help to define what curricular knowledge students need in order to be successful in post-secondary education and the world of work.
Science Depth of Knowledge (Norman Webb)
This report identifies the Depth of Knowledge Levels of the Michigan Content Expectations for Science as aligned with the depth of knowledge levels of the Webb Alignment Model.

A hero doesn’t necessarily have to wear a cape and tights, maybe a hero speaks up for what’s right. Maybe that hero could be you. If you see or hear something that doesn’t seem right, you can submit a confidential tip to OK2SAY. OK2SAY allows anyone to confidentially report tips on criminal activities or potential harm directed at Michigan students, school employees, or schools. Protect yourself and others by using OK2SAY. Because if you won’t, who will?
