What Are the South Carolina College and Career Readiness Standards?

This new set of standards in South Carolina was designed around “Three Dimensional Science Classrooms”

The Thee dimensions are Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas

The goal of the new South Carolina Science Standards is to help students build readiness for college, career, and lifelong learning through the integration of the three dimensions into standards, curriculum, instruction, and local and state assessment, and through the feature of engineering and technology alongside natural sciences.

The Three Dimensions of South Carolina Science Standards

1. Science and Engineering Practices

The science and Engineering Practices describe what scientists do to investigate phenomena and what engineers do to design solutions to problems. Students use the science and engineering practices to practice their skills of inquiry as they explore the natural world. Students engage in practices to build, deepen and apply their knowledge of disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts. 

The eight science and engineering practices are:

  • Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
  • Developing and using models
  • Planning and carrying out investigations
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
  • Using math and computational thinking
  • Constructing an explanation (for science) and designing a solution (for engineering)
  • Engaging in an argument stemming from evidence
  • Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

2. Crosscutting Concepts

Crosscutting Concepts help students explore connections across the four domains of science, including Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Engineering Design. Crosscutting concepts have application across all domains of science. As such, they are a way of linking the different domains of science.

The 7 crosscutting concepts outlined by the South Carolina College and Career Readiness standard are:

  • Patterns
  • Cause and effect
  • Scale, proportion, and quantity
  • Systems and system models
  • Energy and matter: Flows, cycles, and conservation
  • Structure and function
  • Stability and change
Crosscutting Concepts

3. Disciplinary Core Ideas

The Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) are the key ideas in science that students must learn at each level. They build on one another at each grade level. There are disciplinary core ideas in each domain of science: Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Engineering Technology and Applications of Science

The South Carolina Science Standards have broad importance across multiple sciences or engineering disciplines or be a key organizing concept of a single discipline;

Provide a key tool for understanding or investigating more complex ideas and solving problems;
Relate to the interests and life experiences of students or be connected to societal or personal concerns that require scientific or technological knowledge;
Be teachable and learnable over multiple grades at increasing levels of depth and sophistication
