The goal of Alabama's K - 12 science curriculum is the achievement of scientific literacy by all Alabama students. A scientifically literate person is one who has a sound basis in scientific knowledge, the ability to use scientific processes and technology to understand science-related decisions and problems, and the ability to apply science to the increasing challenges of an ever-changing world.  The relationship among these aspects of scientific literacy is depicted in the conceptual framework graphic, which provides a blueprint for scientific literacy for all Alabama students.  This framework illustrates the two basic components for establishing scientific literacy -- the minimum required content that students should master and the process and application skills that are the mechanisms for structuring, integrating, and teaching the content standards.
