Benchmarks for Science Literacy is the Project 2061 statement of what all students should know and be able to do in science, mathematics, and technology by the end of grades 2, 5, 8, and 12. The recommendations at each grade level suggest reasonable progress toward the adult science literacy goals laid out in the project's 1989 report Science for All Americans. Benchmarks can help educators decide what to include in (or exclude from) a core curriculum, when to teach it, and why. Published in 1993 by Oxford University Press, Benchmarks for Science Literacy emerged from more than three years of work by Project 2061 staff in collaboration with teams of teachers at Project 2061's six School-District Centers, and with scientists and university consultants. It reflects the input of more than 1,300 individuals.
