So I have moved back to the Chicago area after teaching in Texas for 11 years. Texas never adopted Common Core or NGSS (science standards). Now I am being directed to implement a curriculum called IQWST and it is a nightmare for me! There are teachers who love it and teachers who hate it and I’m afraid I am in the second group. The curriculum is thin, poorly written, and generally boring. Has anyone ever worked with it before? How do you make it work?
