The UCS Scientific Integrity Curriculum Guide

The United States has enjoyed prosperity and health in large part because of its strong and sustained commitment to independent science. Unfortunately, the manipulation, suppression, and distortion of science threaten this legacy--with serious consequences for our health, safety, and environment.

To foster thoughtful discussions about the proper role of science in federal policy making, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has created a Scientific Integrity Curriculum Guide to help undergraduate and advanced high school instructors teach this complex subject.

The curriculum guide is a fully developed lesson plan that teachers in both scientific and non-scientific disciplines can tailor to suit their needs. It provides lecture slides, worksheets, homework assignments, essay suggestions, and links to other resources; click here to view samples of these materials. The lessons address many of the national curriculum standards contained in the National Science Education Standards and the Project 2061 Benchmarks for Science Literacy.

For full access to all curriculum materials, please register below. UCS will only use this information to inquire about your experiences with the guide and any suggestions you may have for its improvement.
