COOPERATIVE COLLEGE-SCHOOL SCIENCE PROJECT--FIRST, SECOND, AND THIRD YEAR REPORTS.
NICODEMUS, ROBERT B.
PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO IMPROVE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL SCIENCE INSTRUCTION THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW SCIENCE COURSES ARE DESCRIBED IN THREE ANNUAL REPORTS. TEACHERS ATTENDED INTENSIVE SUMMER PROGRAMS THAT WERE PLANNED AND CONDUCTED BY COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS AND BY TEACHERS WHO HAD PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE TEACHING THE NEW COURSES. PROGRAM FEATURES INCLUDED (1) LECTURES BY OUTSTANDING SCIENTISTS ON CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES, (2) DISCUSSION SESSIONS, AND (3) LABORATORY ACTIVITIES. MEETINGS CONDUCTED DURING THE NEXT ACADEMIC YEAR DEALT WITH PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AND TEACHING OF THE NEW PROGRAMS. THE PARTICIPANTS' SUBJECTIVE EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAMS AND THE NATURE OF THEIR SUBSEQUENT TEACHING ACTIVITIES WERE DETERMINED THROUGH FOLLOW-UP STUDIES. SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS' OPINIONS CONCERNING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW SCIENCE COURSES AND THE EFFECT OF THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM ON TEACHERS WERE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF QUESTIONNAIRES. (AG)
