COURSE OUTLINE FOR FIRST SIX WEEKS FOR SCIENCE-LEVEL II, TALENT PRESERVATION CLASSES.
Houston Independent School District, TX.
THE FIRST 6-WEEK UNIT CONCERNS ANIMAL LIFE, AND TOPICS INCLUDE PROTOZOA, INVERTEBRATES, AND VERTEBRATES. UNIT II, "THE HUMAN BODY", INCLUDES BODY SYSTEMS, HEALTH, AND SAFETY. TEXTBOOK REFERENCES, CONTENT OUTLINE, TEACHING SUGGESTIONS, REFERENCE READINGS, AND AUDIOVISUAL AIDS ARE GIVEN UNDER EACH TOPIC. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT FIRST EXPERIENCES WITH THE CLASS BE CONDUCTED ON A DISCUSSION BASIS, WITH THE TEACHER AS THE MAIN REFERENCE POINT. ONE SHOULD AVOID AUDIOVISUAL AIDS AND OTHER RESOURCES AT THIS TIME. THE USE OF LIBRARY MATERIALS SHOULD EVENTUALLY BE PART OF THE PROGRAM. ALSO, THE TEACHER SHOULD HAVE STUDENTS DEVELOP WORD LISTS FOR EACH TOPIC. ANOTHER SUGGESTION IS THAT STUDY OF THE HIGHER INVERTEBRATES BE COVERED THROUGH PUPIL PROJECTS, WITH STUDENTS FOLLOWING REPORT-FORMS. SINCE MANY STUDENTS MAY DROP OUT OF SCHOOL AT THE END OF THE YEAR, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF DISEASE BE EMPHASIZED UNDER THE HEALTH AND SAFETY TOPIC.
