Science CTS Crosswalks

Since the publication of Science Curriculum Topic Study in 2005, two new resources have been added that are used in the CTS study guides: The Atlas of Science Literacy- Volume 2 (used with CTS Section V) and Science Matters- 2nd Edition (used with CTS Section I).

The Atlas of Science Literacy- Volume 2 completes the rest of the AAAS/Project 2061 "Growth in Understanding" strand maps used with CTS Section V. Since these maps are not listed on the 2005 CTS study guides, a crosswalk has been created that links all of the Atlas maps with the corresponding CTS study guides.

The Atlas of science Literacy Volume 2 also contains updated summaries of the research used with CTS Section IV.

In 2009 a second edition of Science Matters was published. About 90% of the "big ideas" content remains the same with the addition of recent discoveries and fields such as biotechnology. Since the page numbers of the sections differ from the previous version, a crosswalk to the 2009 version has been created for CTS users who are using the 2009 version that includes page numbers for the second edition.

The Next Generation Science Standards Crosswalk will be available when the standards are released in 2012 (anticipated date). These standards will be used with CTS Section III.
