In general, participation in any of these courses will often include:

Utah Science with Engineering Education (SEEd) Standards
The SEEd content courses are designed to build and support teacher science content knowledge for each grade, strand, and standard of the Utah Science with Engineering Education (SEEd) Standards. The canvas-based courses are self-paced and focus on science core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and natural phenomena that can be used in the classroom to support teaching the SEEd Standards. Each course is designed to focus on all the standards in one strand of the SEEd standards. Each will start with an introduction to the 3 dimensions of science and then have one module for each standard found in the strand. Based on the size of the strand each course is worth either 0.5 or 1.0 USBE Credit upon completion. Teachers enrolled in the course must receive 100% on every module for the course to be considered completed and to obtain USBE credit for the course. Each module contains an introduction page, content learning section, mastery quiz, and discussion. Once enrolled in a course the participants will continue to have access to the canvas course content even after they are finished so that it can be used as a reference in the future.

Science teachers are invited to take any and all courses they want to prepare to teach the SEEd Standards. Courses are all independent of each other and do not need to be taken in a particular order. Although these courses are made specifically for the 6th – 8th Grade SEEd standards, all teachers of all grades are invited to take these courses to improve their content knowledge in these areas.
