STC-Secondary™ is a 16-unit, inquiry-centered middle school science curriculum developed by the National Science Resources Center (NSRC), an organization of the Smithsonian Institution. Each STC-Secondary™ unit provides opportunities for students to experience scientific phenomena firsthand. A comprehensive, research-based curriculum, STC-Secondary™ is aligned with the National Science Education Standards (NSES) of the National Research Council (NRC).

As students progress through a series of experiences, they compile evidence for the theory of plate tectonics, including patterns of earthquakes, shapes of the continents, paleomagnetism, the fossil record, and convection of the mantle. They also investigate different types of volcanoes, how they form, and how they affect the land and life around them. As students take more responsibility for their own learning, they plan and conduct their own procedures, devise their own tables, and analyze the results they obtain.

Each lesson in Exploring Plate Tectonics builds on skills and concepts presented in previous lessons. The unit begins with an assessment of students’ current understanding of the topic and ends with performance-based and written assessments.
