Does your district offer a Forensic Science course? If so, check out our reviews of Pearson’s Forensic Science.
Savvas Pearson’s Forensic Science (Pearson Forensic Science) is a comprehensive science program for high school Forensic Science. The program focuses on helping students understand the science and technology that is relevant to forensic science. The material also connects multiple areas of science to the field of forensic science. The material is available in print and in digital format through Pearson’s MyLab platform.
Content is organized in consistently formatted chapters. Each chapter begins with an engaging case study and end with activities related to the case study to help students see how forensic science applies in the real world. The material also connects multiple areas of science to the field of forensic science.
The primary means for students to learn the content is through reading the textbook and participating in classroom lectures. Materials require students to read extensively. However, a variety of reading supports are embedded in Pearson’s MyLab platform.
The teacher edition is the primary teacher resource. Each chapter includes content background, summary, and instructional supports for the teacher. Chapters also include labs and suggestions for other hands-on activities. Teaching strategies to support direct instruction, classroom activities, supports for special populations, and classroom discussion questions are provided at point of use throughout the chapters.
